Scriptures for this week are taken from the Lectionary Year A plus from Matthew 5 – Sermon on the Mount – to help prepare you for the new teach series ‘Flipped’.
Daily Scripture for Today: Matthew 5:33-48
There are many ways to engage with scripture…here are 2 of them!
1. Use the Divine Reading (Lectio Divina) method of Praying the Scriptures. Listen while you read it slowly. Meditate on what you hear. Speak to God your prayer, thoughts, questions. Rest in God’s presence, let His presence wash over you as you sit in quiet.
2. SOAP – Scripture (read it) Observe (ask questions, research, etc) Apply (What does say to me in the present?) Pray (let God know what you’re thinking or questioning)
