Hopefully by now you’ve gotten one or even two good reflections from this book and study. It’s one that brings a refreshing perspective on certain things in life, no?
Well, we’ve reached week 4 of 12 – good job sticking it out! Or at least breezing through my emails. 🙂 This chapter’s both positive and negative; both encouraging and somber. Read it here.
Oh yeah. I’m having a contest too! What can you win and what do you have to do?
This chapter spends a few verses on the virtue of having a companion or companions. With my first ever contest, you can win a dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies for you and another dozen for a friend! Or you can choose to keep the other dozen for yourself, but you want to keep that friend, right? 😉 If you’re local, I’ll drop off. If not, I’ll send them to you and your friend! Stay tuned to the end of this study for the contest directions!
If you read through this chapter, you were probably struck with three main concepts; that oppression, rivalry and evil activity on earth can make life feel like it’s not worth living.
The second main concept is that life is better with companionship.
“A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.” 4:12
And the third is that it is better to be humble in spirit than to assume everything is already figured out.
God desires the best for us, that much is clear. And it’s in this teaching that He shows us how to shape our lives and hearts to pursue His best and see His promises fulfilled!
And now it’s contest time!
Review those last three main concepts found in this chapter. Which one resonates with you the most and why? Comment below and I’ll put your name in a random name generator to decide the winner! I’ll close the contest Friday night and announce the winner in the comments Saturday morning.
