Sharing Our Souls

 

Hello Friends,

It’s your favorite moose, or at least I better be. I know there is a lot of competition for that spot in Northern Idaho.

I just wanted to let you know about all the cool things happening in Cedar Point this week.

Our kids are really diving into the word, not only memorizing verses like this week’s, but learning how to find those passages.

They are also learning how to , “ Be an example,” which is our point for this week.

Make sure to ask your kids throughout the week, “what is the point?” It is even more fun if you do the actions. Just put both hooves over your head to make a triangle, or a “point” (like the top of a mountain).

This weeks lesson comes from 1st Thessalonians 2:6, 8

“We were not looking for praise from people, not from you or anyone else, even though as apostles of Christ we could have asserted our authority. 8 …so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.”

What Paul, Silas and Timothy are saying is they were able to be an example because they were not concerned about human praise, but were concerned about caring for and sharing with those around them. In this case, the Thessalonians.

It is hard to be an example of Christ if we don’t really know Christ. That’s why spending time in the word is important. Reading our Bible helps us know more about Christ and His heart for others so that we, like Paul and like the Thessalonians, can be an example to those around us.  

As always, I’ve enjoyed sharing with y’all.

See you next week to discover, know and follow.

Your friend,

Rusty
