Suggested assignments for remainder of April

Hey everyone! I miss y’all! I hope you guys are still using this time to learn and grow in your walk with God!

Since we would be learning all about the parables of Jesus at school, here is what I think would be great for you guys to do:

Use the chart of parables on page 152 and choose one parable per day to read and learn about. Also if it doesn’t make sense to you, take the time to look up a commentary or two and do a little research about what that parable means.

Also, I want to challenge you to spend at least 10 minutes in prayer every day!

You can always email me anytime for questions!

Suggestions for April 6- April 10

Remember these assignments are only suggestions for you to keep growing in your knowledge. They are not going to be turned in or graded.

First Assignment: Read Luke 16:1-15 and then read Lesson 7-3 pages 157-158. Write/Discuss how this lesson relates to alot of people in the current situation in our nation.

Second Assignment: Discuss some ways that money can be helpful and some ways that money can be sinful.

Third Assignment: Read Lesson 7-4 pages 158-160. Discuss the following questions:

1. What are the basic need God has promised to supply for His people.

2. Why are people supposed to work?

3. How should a teenager use their money?

4. Is it right to spend money on entertainment?

Lastly, I want to encourage all of you to find a daily devotional that you can do in your quiet time. Some of you might already have one but of not, I want you to take a little time out of each day to read a few Scripture verses and even start keeping a journal to write some prayer requests and what you learned from your quiet time.

I miss you guys!
