Thoughts for Today
Grow in our knowledge. Get better acquainted. So how do we do this? How do we get better acquainted with our heavenly Father and with his Son?
If we want to build a closer relationship people on this earth, how do we go about it? We spend time with them. When we are together, we don't do all the talking--we listen. If they express their desires--either by speaking or in writing--we are eager to know what they have to say. We try to do things that will please them.
And so it is with the Lord. If we want to know him better, we spend time with him in prayer. And we don't do all the talking--we listen. We eagerly read the Bible to hear his words, to understand him better. We trust him and live to please him.

Knowing God My Father: Applying the Names of God to My Personal Life by Jimmy Ray Lee, D.Min. This curriculum is designed to help people strengthen their relationship with their heavenly Father by applying His names to their personal life. Along with helping Christians know God better, it can serve as an evangelistic tool by giving a true picture of God to people who may have a distorted view of Him because of an absent or abusive earthly father who did not or does not provide for them. This group can also help men who want to be better fathers. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups, and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
