This week, we dig deeper into how the Holy Spirit can help us when we feel like giving up.
Some people think they are so busy they don’t have any time to listen to God. But taking the time to spend reading the Bible, praying, and listening to Him is exactly what we need! Martha was always so busy and blamed other people, including her sister, Mary. But Mary chose to learn from Jesus, which brought her a lot of peace and wisdom. When Martha complained to Jesus, He told her that Mary had chosen the most important thing to do: spend time with Him!
God created the world and sent Jesus for us, because He loves us.
The Holy Spirit can help us love others even when it might be tough.
When Jesus was just 12 years old, He travelled with His parents to the Temple to celebrate the Passover. But instead of doing things that other 12-year-olds may have done, Jesus was in the Temple with the teachers, asking them questions and teaching them! Jesus had studied the Scriptures and listened in prayer as His Father taught Him. When He read the Bible, He saw all the scriptures and promises about Himself!
