Small Group Leader Update for Oct 19, 2016

WHY DO HAMBURGERS FLY SOUTH FOR THE WINTER?

So they don't freeze their buns.

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

We'll continue to read through the book of James, and this week will talk about how God is jealous for us. (James 4:1-12).

James details the simplicity of living for the Lord: Submit to God, don’t boss him around with questions of, “Why didn’t you this, or that?” Submit. Resist the devil and he’ll flee. Draw near to God. Right now, draw near to God and he’ll draw near to you. No matter what you’ve been pursuing, God will give you grace if you turn to him.

Although we do not deserve God's favor, he reaches out to us in love and gives us worth and dignity, despite our shortcomings. Pray with us that the words we read from James lead us to take an next step in faith.
