Rest. The word used most frequently in our Sabbath School Lesson pamphlet this quarter. “Thou shalt rest, Thou shalt rest!” These are words repeated each verse of
Hymn 387 – Come, O Sabbath Day, our theme hymn for this quarter.
We could add to the theme
Hymn 529 – Under His Wings. Each week of study, gives more and more of showing God’s deepest care for us, His children. As God’s children we find this week the family has growing pains, and still does today. Yet, we are still “under His wings”.
Our family has evidence that
Blest Be the Tie That Binds – Hymn 350 our hearts in Christian love is the best way to pray together, and stay together. Truly
Hymn 655 – Happy the Home show us the wonders of God being with us.
Sadness is seen in the dysfunctional families in the Bible (and our failing world today), but still our study gives us encouragement that in the end the Biblical families were able to sing
The God of Abraham Praise – Hymn 11. Ellen White points out that “Joseph believed that the God of his fathers would be his God –
Hymn 645 – God of Our Fathers. It was then that “Joseph gave himself fully to the Lord” –
Hymn 572 – Give of Your Best to the Master.
Tuesday points out the fact that “God looks at each of us with glasses tinted with grace” –
Hymn 108 – Amazing Grace and
Hymn 109 – Marvelous Grace.
Joseph continued to grow immensely and we find that he does not yield to temptation as may be sung in our previous hymnal,
Number 498 – Yield Not to Temptation. It was the help received from God that won. We can find this in
Hymn 103 – O God, Our Help.
Blessings to you for a wonderful week ahead.
