Building Anticipation for Next Class

I'm guessing due to Tony's comment last week, everybody stayed home to catch up on reading Shepherding a Child's Heart. Yeah, it was a strange week, but I am hoping nobody had the stomach bug that was in our family last week. Blah.

So class entailed the Sauls and us. Here are some comments from our time together...

"I never knew this room echoed. Hello!" - Kevin

"Seriously, if I eat another bagel, I'll explode. You'll just have to take them home." - Justin

"So then, tell me about your life." - Allison

Suffice it to say, we skipped the lesson for the week, but we do have the notes for Chapter 4: You're In Charge posted if you want to get a head start for next week.

One thing we did talk about was how Shepherding a Child's heart speaks to our relationship with God. The whole idea about the importance of our children's hearts are just as important about our own heart.

God is in love with you. He wants your heart just as much as He wants your kids. Our behavior is an overflow of our heart. Therefore whatever we do, even sin, it is all an invitation to explore our hearts to give more of it to God. The more we understand our hearts, the more we can coonect with God. "Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart" Psalm 37:4
