As we witness key characters in the Bible such as the children of Israel, Jacob, Habakkuk, and Jesus, we gain insight on how to carry our burdens well, how our breaking points can be breakthroughs, how to resist injustice, and how to value our souls over materialism.
How can we remember and share our testimonies of what God has done in our lives? As the children of Israel cross into the Promised Land they give us insight on how to remember and honor what God has allowed us to carry in the past. Based on Joshua 4:10-24.
What do we do when the burdens of the past we carry have brought us to a breaking point? Jacob shows us how our breaking points can actually be used as breakthroughs by God. Based on Genesis 32.
How can we praise God when the world is filled with heavy burdens? Habakkuk helps us to see how praising God helps us resist injustice and overcome heaviness. Based on Habakkuk 3:17-19.
We must face our own capacity and proclivity to give in to greed of all kinds, especially in trying and tough times. It's time to stop being bossed around and bothered by our economic system and situation. Based on Mark 8:36-37.
Jesus was counter-cultural and counter-capitalist, and as his disciples, we need to live "unbought" and "unbossed." Our economic society seeks to buy us and boss us around without our consent, but if we give in to greed, we will lose our soul. Learn to exchange greed for generosity. Based on Luke 12:15.
