WEEK 3 – Learning to Live Open-handed


Good Morning Ladies!

So much positive energy and enthusiasm during our time together on Thursday! How exciting!

Welcome to Week 3!!!

Today during my quiet time I was lead to read Colossians 3:2 – "Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." This verse fits perfectly with Jeremiah 29:13, "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." When we "set our minds on things above," we look at things from God's perspective and "seek" what He desires. With so much going on in the world around us, when we follow after Christ, we can love and serve those around us. Regard the world as God does and live in harmony with Him!

In Philippians 4:8, Paul tells us to "Think on These Things" - … whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Our assignments for the coming week – here they are:
