Week of March 27
This Week’s Reading Assignment
The group discussion thread is under Bible Study » Luke.
S.O.A.K. any verse of your choosing.

Reading: Luke 11
Verse of the Day: Luke 11:1
Good Morning Girls: Introduction to the Week
Optional GMG Discussion Question: Learning to pray is of utmost importance! Jesus did not teach his disciples how to preach, but He did teach them how to pray. The prayer in Luke 11, is not meant to be recited as a ritual, but rather as a pattern for our prayer life. After Jesus gave the pattern, He then gave an example of the boldness and persistence He wants us to have in our prayers.
Pause and pray through the Lord’s Prayer today. Then consider, is there something you have given up praying for that you need to boldly and persistently begin praying for again? Write your prayer below.

Reading: Luke 12
Verse of the Day: Luke 12:15
Optional GMG Discussion Question: The world system tells us that success and possessions deserve a high five, but at the end of the parable in Luke 12, God calls the rich man a fool! The only way to conquer a greedy heart is to believe that life does not consist in the abundance of our possessions.
Do you struggle with this? Jesus tells us to “be on guard.” How can you guard and protect yourself from falling into the temptation of desiring an abundance of possessions?

Reading: Luke 13
Verse of the Day: Luke 13:30
Optional GMG Discussion Question: To God, it does not matter what our standing in this world is. Money, titles, status, beauty, lineage and good works are not what God looks at. Salvation is based on Jesus’ grace alone.
Do you, at times, feel jealous of others whose standing in this world is higher than yours? One of the great mysteries of the gospel is how those who are first in this world are last in the next. How does this truth bring you comfort today?

Reading: Luke 14
Verse of the Day: Luke 14:11
Optional GMG Discussion Question: Jesus was the ultimate example of one who deserved the highest exaltation but He was humble. True humility does not have too high of an opinion of oneself and is others-centered rather than self-centered.
We are promised that those who humble themselves will one day – in eternity – be exalted. In what area of your life, do you need to work on humility?

Reading: Luke 15
Verse of the Day: Luke 15:10
Good Morning Girls: Devotional and Video
Optional GMG Discussion Question: The parables in Luke 15 show us that God goes after the lost and heaven celebrates when they are found. Nothing is more precious to us as when it is lost. Think of your car keys – if they are lost – you search until they are found. And when they are found – you rejoice. In the same way, the angels rejoice when a sinner repents.
Who have you recently shared the love of Jesus or the gospel with? If you haven’t had this opportunity, write a prayer for someone who is lost and ask God for boldness.
