Focus Statement: My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73.26
Scripture passages: Genesis 4:1-16; Luke 11:53-54; Isaiah 43:1-4; 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Children’s time: The group took some time to talk about emotion, specifically envy and contentment. They decided that envy was wanting something that someone else has, and that contentment was being happy and having gratitude. They discussed the story of Joseph and this brothers and the way in which the envy the brothers had for Joseph caused a lot of hurt and suffering in their family. They concluded with the message: Love is the emotion that binds us all together; Love is the shape of God.
