Theme: Dive into God’s word today.
1. Have you ever felt wisdom coming from God? How does God share knowledge with you?
2. Jesus is the son of God, but he had very human experiences while he was on earth. Jesus was sad and he cried when his friend Lazarus died (John 11:33-35). He needed alone time to pray (Luke 5:16). Jesus was abandoned and betrayed by his friends (Mark 14:40-50). As you listen to today’s episode, think about how reading about Jesus’ experiences can help you when you go through hard times.
“All wisdom comes from the Lord, and so do common sense and understanding”
A: She did a cross-stitch of one of the letter’s sentences.
In this episode, Carrie Grace shared a personal letter with her fans to teach them a lesson about the Bible. Carrie’s fans reacted to her letter the same way people often treat the Bible. Some use it for decorating or inspirational quotations. Some memorize the words. Some pull out picky details just to sound smart. Only Julia connected to the real purpose of the letter. She said that it was good reading Carrie’s stories, knowing that Carrie understood some of the hard things that Julia has gone through.
The Bible is God’s letter to us. How do you treat God’s “letter”? Do you memorize it for prizes? Do you use it to decorate your room? Do you learn small details about it? All those are fine, but if you do not spend time really connecting with the stories and lessons, you are missing the point.
Put together a puzzle! Choose one that is big or small, with any number of pieces. As you put together the puzzle, think about how when the pieces are put together, they form one big picture: just like the Bible! Each small story on it’s own seems unimportant. But when they are all in order, they reveal a better, bigger plan!
Now you are part of God’s big picture too. Whether you do big or small things for God, they will all fit together in God’s “Big Picture.”
