Teaching to Learn and Learning to Teach


November 21 – Three Years Ago

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

We had ladies Bible study today. The promise we studied today was God’s provision. We talked about how he cares for the sparrows and clothes the lillies. Steph then talked about how our response to that provision is to be thankful. She spoke about how sometimes it is a sacrifice of thanksgiving. Sometimes we don’t like what God has provided but we are told to give thanks for everything. God sometimes provides in creative and painful ways. Pain is often the loving provision of God which results in spiritual growth.

Steph’s homework for us, which I am now passing on to you, was to think of something that we are not too thankful for now and on Thanksgiving thank God for it. In everything give thanks means even for the half-cooked chicken I will eat for dinner this evening. It also includes being thankful even for the fact that dinner is an hour and a half late. It means being thankful for our singleness, or lack there of, awkwardness, weaknesses and also for that person that really irritates you.
