Study Questions Week 6


  1. What does it mean to restore someone gently? 
    1. Is there a time that you can think of that someone has restored you gently? Take some time to write down all the things that you remember about that time. In what way did the person approach you? How did they make you feel? Was there an action that they encouraged you to take to correct your behavior/thought?
  2. Do you have people in your life that help carry your burden? Give them a word of thanks, this week. And look for someone that you can come alongside to help with their burden. It can be physical (like holding a door open), spiritual (praying for someone), emotional (being present in their grief or celebration). 
  3. Paul says in verse 7 God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 
    1. Take some time to examine your actions lately and see if you've been a fair-weather friend to God. If so, take the time and effort to reconnect.
    2. We can't plant green beans and then be upset when it's harvest time and there are no tomatoes. We only get back a return on what we invest. What have you been investing lately?
  4. Paul talks often in his letters about being crucified to the world. It's easy to think that if we just remove ourselves from the world or reduce its influence on us then we will be able to become righteous. In verse 15, Paul reminds us that circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything. Whether we are fully focused on gaining the world or a hermit living in a cave closing our eyes to the world, we are focused on the wrong thing, the world. What is one step you can take this week to put your focus on God and becoming a new creation?
  5. Challenge of the week: Take some time each morning with your daily plan and lay it down before God and ask what things you should add and take away.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Journey to Love Matt Mikalatos

Did you read Sky Lantern ? No? Well, go read it and then come back for this book. Yes, order them at the same time! I promise you, they'll both be worth it and they really are part of one another. Here's why, Matt Mikalatos lost a very dear friend, Shasta, he tells part of their story in Sky Lantern and fulfills a promise to with Journey to Love.  Journey to Love is a little book, almost a 40 day devotional with little vignettes of love and then ways for you to reflect that love and an exercise to grow in that aspect of love. It's not an easy book because love isn't an easy thing. the reflections and exercises sometimes take a few days to work through or a lifetime if we're honest.  I was touched by how Mikalatos decided to fulfill his promise to Shasta, how he managed to leave a little bit of their love on the written page for people to witness for years to come. It's beautiful and heartbreaking and challenging and rewarding. To be able to have a little glimpse
