Yesterday we learned that God is a generous God! He gives out of abundance and compassion. He gives us what we NEED and many times more than we need. We cannot earn His love. He loved us while we were sinners, and He loves us now - even when we sin. He doesn't like sin. In fact, He hates sin because of the harm it does to us, our souls, and those around us too. But HE LOVES US unconditionally, regardless of anything we have done. And the only thing He wants from us is for us to know Him and love Him.
This week's "assignment" is to read or recite Psalm 23 before you go to bed and when you wake up in the morning. Maybe even compare different versions of this Psalm. This Psalm talks about a very generous God. It speaks of His continual provision for us.
Do this in addition to the previous "assignments." You will find as you do these "assignments" that you will begin to know God more and you will begin to love God more. It won't take more than 30-45 minutes to do all the "assignments" in one day & you'll find you will have more peace and less stress too!
