Hosea 11:1-11

This week continues the narrative from Hosea of Gods people turning away from God and straying in their ways.
What do you think it was like to live during that time?  Do you think they realized they were straying?
Do you see any similarities with today's society and the society that Hosea describes?
How can we look at how we are living today as a society and see if we need to move closer to God's plan for us?

Psalm 107:1-9, 43

This Psalm speaks of the mercy of the Lord- read this aloud this week and pray this Psalm this week.

Colossians 3:1-11

This lesson builds on the narrative of renewal in Christ.  You have died and been reborn with your life now hidden with Christ in God.
What does this mean for you?  Where in your life have you or do you want to experience renewal? 


Luke 12:13-21

The Gospel this week builds on Colossians message of renewal and letting go of your Earthly Riches in exchange for Heavenly Treasures.
Life today is so fast paced with so much distraction- How can we re-focus on the future, rather than the present a bit more?
What are those everyday things you can let go in order to see beyond the everyday and prepare for your future with Christ?
