Using Our Words to Encourage – Today’s
Dear Heavenly Father,
Your Word tells us not to let any unwholesome talk come out of our mouths, but that we should be using our words to encourage each other, and to build each other up. Unwholesome thoughts lead to unwholesome talk, so we ask that You cleanse our hearts and minds so we may be disciplined in all that we say and do.
Help us to respond positively to each other in love. Teach us to respect, honor, and trust one another with our hearts.
Help us to notice the small things, and to realize the many things we may take for granted. May we always show our appreciation for them.
Help us to look for the best in each other instead of judging one another. Help us to see each other through a veil of grace and compassion.
May we put in the effort and the energy it takes to please each other more than ourselves. And may we always seek to please You.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Paul’s Letter to the Galatians – Bible Study
This delightful and inspiring journal takes you on an exploration through the book of Galatians. Insight, encouragement, and thought-provoking questions motivate you to dig deeper into scripture and hold fast to your faith. The style of this journal is perfect for small group study, as members can work on these booklets at home and return for discussion. It’s also ideal for those who prefer to study alone. Astonished that they have turned their heads from the truth of the gospel, Paul writes a letter to the church in Galatia both to correct them, and to strengthen them in their faith. Paul shares the fundamental elements of the Christian faith. Drawing a line between the works of the law and the law of faith, he points them to the only One by whom we are justified. Inside this book, you’ll find thought-provoking questions, quotes from some of our favorite Bible commentators, space to jot down your thoughts, and whimsical images that help make your study time creative.
