Devotional for 5/28 - 6/1

DEVOTIONALS

Day one:
Look: Read Philippians 4:10-23

Understand: What stood out to you? What questions do you still have?
Go: How can you put what you learned into practice this week?

Day two:
Reflect on the verse of the week within its context: Philippians 4:13-14 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble”
This verse is quoted often; how does Paul intend for us to understand this verse?

Day three:
Journal through the Kairos Questions of the week.

Day Four:
Look: Read Matthew 6:19-24
Understand: What is the relationship between being a partner and giving financially? Why should you give?
Go: Does it take more income or more discipline to be generous? What are some areas that you are taking your turn in the front?

Day Five:
Look: We have covered the last chapter in Philippians. Take some time to skim through your journal and review the big points in Philippians.

Understand: How has this study impacted you?
Go: Shoot me an email (randy@gfc.tv) or comment on this New Hope Facebook Post on Friday about how this study has impacted you.

KAIROS- Small Group & Discipleship Questions

 Heart- Who are some people you know that have lived selfless lives? Do you admire them and hope to have the same generous heart? What are the things in your life you tend to be selfish with?

Soul- Why is the question of giving such a personal one (in a group this one is optional)? When you examine your spending, how does it match up to what Paul says about giving?

 Mind- How do you define Christian contentment? From where does it derive? What are the truths about Christian contentment according to Philippians 4: 11-13?

 Strength- Ask God if there is someone that you can support through prayer or giving this week?  Send them a message and let them know.
