Good Morning Ladies!
 

Welcome to Week Two of Women’s Bible Study during a worldwide pandemic!!
 

If you are not a part of FaceBook and would like to be a part of our private group, “The Gathering”, please contact me on FaceBook and I will be happy to add you to our group!  

Being part of our on line group will allow you to ask questions about our study, encourage one another, post prayer requests, and there is rumor that there is a posted video from me…WHAT?  
 

Seriously…I hope that you and your family are healthy and safe…please know I pray daily for our  church, our study group, and our families.  I can’t tell you how much I miss see your sweet faces on Tuesdays.  You know quarantining is hard when a certified “introvert” is missing PEOPLE!  
 

Again, you will find a link below to this week's teaching video from Dr. Levine, as well as, some scripture to read and questions to ask yourself or to use as prompts for journaling.  If you have questions about the scriptures or video please contact me through this email, for text me 704-654-7615.

He Still Hasn’t Moved,

The Greatest Commandment
Mark 12:28-34
 

Jesus sums up the Law by lifting up two Old Testament commands as primary: loving God and loving our neighbor.  Let’s look at places in the Old Testament where we find those commands.
 

Turn in your Bible to Deuteronomy 6 and look for the command to love God.
What verses contain the command? 
What other kinds of love are talked about in this chapter?
 

Turn in your Bible to Leviticus 19 and look for the command to love one’s neighbor.
What verses contain the command? 

What other kinds of love are talked about in this chapter?
 

What did you learn about what it means to love God or your neighbor?
 

The Widow’s Mite
Mark 12:41-44
Journal your answers to the following questions:

Why is this story more than the widow’s self-sacrifice?
How did the Temple system support the poor?
What kind of support does our church offer its most vulnerable members in our community?
 

Consider The Pharisees and Herodians
Mark 12:13-17
 

What does it mean to “give to emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s” (Mark 12:17) ?
 

For Reflection:
What would giving more to God look like?
How would this giving honor God?
How would it change our thinking about the significance of money for us?
 

CLOSING PRAYER
God of love,
Who walked the journey of life and death with us, In Jesus you were tested and tried.  When we are tested and tried, help us remember the love in which we were created, and which is never ending.  Amen.
