Today in Sunday School

The first scripture lesson was Proverbs 2:3-4 (TEV): Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight.  Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. This lesson taught that knowledge and insight are not obvious.  The lesson was a plea for us to turn to scripture: When we seek the treasure in the Bible, God helps us discover it (Upper Room 3/14/11).  We must depend on God and the Bible to guide us to knowledge and insight.  These will assists us as we pan for gold—getting past the debris of life to everlasting truths.  The second scripture lesson was Colossians 3:15 (NRSV): Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts. When we look to Christ, peace can fill our souls.  When troubles or situations arise that threated our peace, we can rely on the strength of our relationship with God by calling on God in prayer and choosing to accept God’s peace in place of our anxiety (UR 3/15/11).  The link between these two lessons is that God desires that we be free—free from the bondages of ignorance and anxiety.  To do this, we must look beyond ourselves and be open to divine guidance and inspiration.
