5 – Wise Words for Families – 4/27 – 5/4

This week’s lesson – Wise Words for Families

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Prov. 3:56, NKJV).

Proverbs is a treasure chest of wisdom. All of its advice is timeless because the words were inspired by God as an expression of love for His children. We can trust the Lord no matter how great our problems might be, and when we do, it is the best decision that we can make (Prov. 3:5). The Lord wants us to live lives of prosperity and blessing beyond what we can imagine for ourselves or for our families, and we will, if we trust Him.  From this week’s lesson – Friday.

Read about it, think about it, and let’s discuss this Sabbath.

4 – When Alone – 4/20 – 4/26

This week’s lesson – When Alone

“And the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him’ ” (Gen. 2:18, NKJV).

Loneliness is confirmation that we were created by a relational God. It is also evidence that sin has marred God’s original plan for our lives. In that sense, we ought to embrace our loneliness as an experience that could deepen our relationship with God (cf. Rom. 5:3). Rather than pretending that we are not lonely, we need to acknowledge the feeling and allow God to minister to us through it. As we find our primary companionship in Christ, He will lead us to Christian fellowship that will ease the feelings of isolation we may face.  From this week’s lesson – Friday.

3 – Preparing for Change – 4/13 – 4/19

This week’s lesson – Preparing for Change

“Righteousness will go before Him, and shall make His footsteps our pathway” (Ps. 85:13, NKJV).

Life is a journey of turmoil and unexpected events; adaptation and growth. Our human existence is characterized by and will always be fashioned by our choices and our response to change. For unbelievers, it is merely living to die, existing to experience only perfect bliss while being seemingly independent creators of their own destiny, disconnected from the Almighty. However, for Christians, God expects us to be in a constant state of faithful readiness for each phase of life’s journey. Though we will never get accustomed to the inevitable, God has created us with a natural instinct to deal with our challenges by staying connected to Him and trusting Him to decide our paths. From this week’s lesson – Friday.

2 – The Choices We Make – 4/6 – 4/12

This week’s lesson – The Choices We Make

“And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Josh. 24:15, NKJV).

Job, Daniel, and Stephen all have one thing in common: they chose to follow God. Life wasn’t always easy, though. They faced many trials along the way, but their faith never wavered. When trials come, we cannot falter between two opinions. There is no grey area. There are only two options for us to choose from: one is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, while the other is the path that leads to destruction. The question remains to us as it did to them. Do we choose to stay faithful with eternity in mind or to pursue the fleeting pleasures of this world?  From this week’s lesson – Friday.
