In today's polarized society, Unity is in short supply among many people today. We need people to come together under a common goal; to look at each other perspective. Jesus focused most of his ministry on unifying people under God's plan for the world. He taught love, respect, and togetherness.

People often say that science and the Bible are polar opposites; that science disproves the Word of God. In many ways, science and the Bible actually help prove each other. Much of the scriptures is a history book that can be verified by scientific research. Also, a lot of science proves the existence of God in how there would have to be a designer for things to have worked out like they did.

Gideon was about as ordinary as you can get when it came to judges in that time. He was given impossible odds, but because he obeyed God, he was able to be successful, He may have "appeared" to question God, but honored his courage to ensure he was obeying properly and leading God's people properly. He was nothing special as a person, but did many amazing things because God used him powerfully.

Mission's Sunday is always about helping those around the world financially, but it is also about breaking down walls.

Its easy to focus on ourselves, but he taught us to look outside us and help others.

A Shepherd knows his sheep. God is the shepherd and we are the sheep. He knows all of us intimately, even if we don't know him. He cares for us and always sets us up for success. It is up to us whether we follow the path he had laid out. Sheep should obey their shepherd, but even they rebel at times. Ultimately, they need the shepherd far more than they understand.

God speaks to us in many different ways. He speaks to all humanity (Logos) with the path that he wants us to take. He also speaks to each of us individually (Remah) with specific paths that he has set out for each of us. We must listen to both and respond accordingly. He wants nothing but the best for us, but must obey all forms of his word.

While we are still between the two trees of Eden and Heaven, humanity is still waiting. Revelation describes the end of our spiritual road. It is where God's plan is ultimately fulfilled. Christ is the reason why we focus on God's plan and do all that we can to advance his kingdom while we are here.

God calls us to be stewards of our lives and his kingdom. Stewardship comes from both faith in God's plan and his practical purpose for us here on earth. The scriptures help us to understand and have faith in God's plan for being stewards of his kingdom, as well as it lays out a set of practical applications on how we maintain this. One of those areas is related to our finances and giving back to His Church, which is the topic of this midweek lesson. Andy Winje outlines how we practically implement this plan in respects to our budge and Steve Morici shows us the heart we need to have behind our giving and how God will always honor it.
