Guess what? Today, YOU get to teach.
Jacque (Snoodles) reminded me of something in her post Friday. One thing that I really felt led to do with this study when it first started was make it a STUDY and not a Devotional. I am hoping that through this study you are learning to get to the meat of the Word and not just read this blog post for the day and then just put your Bible aside.We enjoy giving you something to think on...but mostly we just are hoping to jump start your personal study. This week we are going to be dusting off those journals and studying!
Get your commentary handy (easily found via the internet), as well as your Bible, Journal, and plan to get your knees a bit dirty as we also focus on more prayer time. (Because I need it and I am teaching this week so that's what you get. *grin*)
So, read today's verse and tell me what do you think it means? We like comments and discussions. Don't be afraid that you might have the 'wrong' answer. Most of the time, there are not 'wrong' answers.
I want to know:
1) If the poor have abundant food, why are they poor?
2) Why is the food swept away so easily?
3) How does this relate to our Spiritual life?
Today in your personal prayer time, go back and make your ACTS list. Don't know what that is? Read about it RIGHT HERE.
Finally, today I want you to think about how much time you give your most humdrum, boring task. What do you hate to do more than anything else. Don't think too general here, like "go to work"; be more specific like "Wash the dishes" or perhaps if you work outside the home it is something in your job like photocopying a certain job or answering the phones. Whatever it is...have it be something you just don't like. Now, keep track of how much time you spent doing that task. Then keep track of how much time you spent with God in His Word and in Prayer. Did you give the thing that you HATE to do, more time than you give God? Is He not even worth more than something you hate??
OUCH. I am running to prop my sore feet up now....
