It’s time for Bible Study Monday! We are thrilled to go through our newest Bible study, Courageous Kindness, right here with you. Each Monday we provide the reading assignment, a discussion video featuring three (in)courage writers, a quote of the week, reflection questions, and a prayer. All you need is your copy of Courageous Kindness and an open heart, and we’ll take care of the rest!
Let’s start Week 5, which explores the impact of offering kindness for the long haul.
This week, read Week 5: For the Long Haul, on pages 159-194 in Courageous Kindness. Grab your copy and start reading!
Three (in)courage writers invite us into their conversations about Courageous Kindness! Join study author Becky Keife alongside Grace P. Cho and Lucretia Berry each week as they discuss the readings. Listen in on their conversation about Week 5 (and find all the weekly videos here):
Quote of the Week
Keep this quote in mind as you read Week 5:
We too have the opportunity (and responsibility) to look for ways to invest in others.
– Becky Keife in Courageous Kindness. Feel free to download this quote to share with a friend!
In the comments below, answer and discuss the following reflection questions:
- Has a friend ever gifted you time or service over the long haul?
- How has long-haul kindness helped you see more of God?
Let’s Pray Together
Oh Jesus, what a friend I have in You. Thank You for reminding me of Your love and loyalty through the pages of Scripture and the stories in my own life. Help me to follow Your example of loving others well. Empower me today to live a life of courageous kindness for the long haul. Amen.
