We had another great night last night! Lots of pizza, games and laughs. Bill led us in a devotion based on Colossians 3:1-2. Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. We discussed the things we think about a lot on a daily basis and how almost all of those things are "earthly". When we keep our thoughts on these things we are more negative, angry, annoyed, self centered, we gossip, and complain, we feel beat down, BUT, when we focus on God we find hope and understanding, love and grace. We ended the lesson each sharing a blessing from the day and Bill reminded us that this is an easy way to shift our thinking from negative, earthly things, to positive, God-honoring things.
We are back next week for our last week of Highway 56! 5th graders are invited to come to WyldLife Club this Saturday from 5-7 here at First.
