Happy April, everyone!
Has spring sprung yet in your part of the world? Here in the heartland, we anticipate that we’ll go from blizzards to tornadoes and back to blizzards again before we launch directly into 100-degree summer heat.
Regardless of what your weather is doing, I hope last months study on boundaries was encouraging for you. Boundaries require constant monitoring and intentional support, and that is true for every person in the world.
And one of the most important character qualities you need to keep your boundaries healthy is courage. So that’s what we’re going to be studying in the month of April. We’re going to talk about what courage looks like, where you get it, how to live with it, and why it matters, and I have already been so blessed by what I’m finding in Scripture.
Did you realize that courage doesn’t always look like what you expect? I think of courage and I think superheroes, but what we’re going to talk about this week is the paradox of Courage.
April 4 - Courage isn’t always flashy
April 5 - Courage is doing the work
April 6 - Courage is waiting on God
April 7 - Courage is immediate action
April 8 - Courage is self-control
For our memory verse this week, we’re going back to the Old Testament in 1 Samuel 17:47.
Do you remember where this statement happens? It’s a pretty famous moment in Scripture. Read the verses around it and see if you can figure it out. (Even people who don’t read the Bible usually have heard of this particular story.) It’s a classic courageous moment from the Bible.
May we all have the kind of courage that reminds us to lean on Jesus this week.
