Lesson 8, “Persevere with the End in Mind” 1 Peter 4:7-19
I think in today’s society we focus too much on the now and not on the future. As a Christian we must focus on the future and the end time on earth.
Peter thought prayer was very important and I really agree, because it is one of the ways we speak with God. Without prayer we wouldn’t be able to talk with God and share our praises and concerns.
I learned that you need to have self-control and be sober-minded to have an authentic and consistent mind while praying. When I say my own prayers, I have found it best to kneel or sit, because if I do it any other way, I lose my focus.
One of the other important things I learned this week is that we need to love and keep loving others in a Godly way, even when we are feeling out of sorts. Peter says that love covers many sins. And this week, no matter how frustrated people make me, I am going to show them unconditional love.
Next week is our last week. I hope you have been enjoying my views from these lessons.
I hope you all have had a wonderful week and I will inform you next week about my thoughts on “Lesson Nine.” Please look at the rest of my blogs for the other lessons.
