Today is our next Women Discipling Women meeting and I have prepared a pasta salad to take with me as we always enjoy a meal first. Not everyone one is required to take something, but I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to give. I posted last month about the book that we all read, Counsel from the Cross, it was a wonderful book. The next book we are reading is Women Counseling Women, also by Elyse Fitzpatrick. I have already started it and am enjoying it a great deal.
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. -- Titus 2:3-5
The other thing on my mind today is not what I can give, but what God gave us. He gave us His only begotten Son to die for us, and as we approach this Christmas season it is so wonderful to focus on that.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
-- Isaiah 9:6
I hope you have a wonderful Word Filled Wednesday! Happy giving!
