Yesterday we studied Luke 12 together - the God of provision provides for us. (See the passage below.) He cares for even the smallest creature, like these 3" moths who are resting on the wood siding of our house.
We do a takeaway as we wrap up each time we study. I hear the relaxation in our voices as we commit to trusting God; he will care for our needs and decide for/against our wants. (Surely he knows better than we do what will serve him and the world best!)
The other thing we decide is to write down one thing to: "think on these things," as the writer of Philippians 4:8 says. So I'm passing this assignment along as my challenge to you.
What will you think about today?
Thank you, God. We are never out of sight to you. You watch over us, care for us, and tenderly, persistently coax us into a relationship with you. We live in your loving presence, knowing that you are a Good Father to all. Help us to be mindful and thankful today. Amen.
