This morning while reading today's key Bible verses from the Holy Bible app to my sons, I saw a learning moment beyond the scriptural text. The text revealed an entire English Language Arts lesson for us to reinforce skills they are learning in school. The Bible verses were from 1 Peter 5:8-9:
Have you ever felt like you need a heart tune-up? I know I have. Actually I experienced this feeling just about 2-3 months ago. I would see or hear a story on TV, the radio, or in person, and I would develop negative thoughts and feelings concerning the person or situation at hand. I was conscious that this was not Christ-like thinking or being, but I wasn’t ready to rid myself of the walls of negativity, frustration, and defeat…until one day.
