LOOK FOR A REASON
Are you thankful for the people God has put in your life? It’s so easy to take for granted the ones we love the most. And we rarely tell them how important they are to us.
In this lesson, we are focusing on a few verses in the letters Paul wrote to the churches. Notice a common theme in his opening greetings.
Read the following verses in two or more versions of the Bible, and list the reasons Paul thanked God in his prayers for these people. (Check out the Amplified Bible if you have it available).
1) Romans 1:8
2) 1 Corinthians 1:4-6
3) Philippians 1:3-6
4) Colossians 1:3-4
5) 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
Now…let’s look for a reason to be thankful for specific people in our lives. Think of five friends or family members who are dear to you. Thank God for them individually, expressing why you are thankful for each one. Pray about telling them what makes you grateful for them. Then share with us how Paul’s example has inspired you.
I hope you will respond and interact with me and with others on our Facebook page. May God bless us as we study and interact together around His Word.
