Link to Lesson 1.

Lesson 2- “Respond like a Bone-Dry Babe”

Lesson two has been thought provoking.  I really enjoyed studying Core 4 (“Love One Another") and Core 5 (Satisfy Your Craving”). 

I liked Core 4, because it shows that if we can truly love our neighbors then we are loving and obeying God.  In Core 5, I was captivated by the thought of spiritual milk.  Comparing it so much to a mother’s milk turned me off until I thought of a cow instead of a human mother.  We do need that milk, literal or figurative, and we will become much better Christians if we satisfy our cravings for the word of God (the spiritual milk).  These two cores has shown me a lot in how I need to grow in Christ, with how I treat others and how I study the Bible.  I need to make a daily effort to do both.  I need to reach out to at least one person to show them how much they are loved by me (and God) and I need to read the Bible, so I can better help those people and myself.  And I think I am going start in my own family and then work from there.

One thing that is concerning me as I am reading and doing this Bible study, is that it is taking much longer than an 1 1/2 just to do the Core sections.  In the introduction it said that this study would take that amount of time and I think it takes me around 1/2 an hour to do one Core.  I am hoping that as I become fluent in doing this Bible study that my time will improve, because I am running out of time in the day to do what I need to do, perhaps this is a sign I need to make more time for God.
