Week of May 7 - May 12
growing deeply
MONDAY: Matthew 7:24-29 Life-Long Learning
To be a life-long learner is to recognize that we can always grow in our knowledge.
No one ever reaches an end-point to educational growth.
REFLECTION: Reflect on your formal education. Did you stop learning or seeking
information when your school days ended, or did you continue to learn?

TUESDAY: Matthew 7:24-29 Knowing and Growing To know something is not necessarily the same as understanding it. Understanding is not necessarily the same as internalizing. CONSIDER: Have you ever learned a fact, but did not truly understand it or understand how to use the knowledge? Consider the sequence from knowing to understanding, to internalization.

WEDNESDAY: Matthew 7:24-29 Information = Gathering Information is important in every aspect of our lives. What we know guides our next steps. CONSIDER: Consider a time when you gathered facts about an idea or a process. Now consider what happened next: did you apply what you learned, or did you let the information stagnate and did not use it for any purpose?

THURSDAY: Matthew 7:24-29 Formation = Using Unless we take the information that we have and use it to form our decision- making and our actions, we have gone only half of the journey. REFLECTION: Reflect on a learning process that you encountered. When you took the information and applied it, how was your experience enhanced?

FRIDAY: Matthew 7:24-29 Foundations The writer of Matthew likens a solid spiritual foundation to choosing a location for the building of a house. We should seek a personal relationship with Christ and build our lives on his foundational teachings. CONSIDER: Consider the foundations of your life – physical, emotional, and spiritual. Is your life built on sturdy foundations? If so, consider what creates the strength. Is your life built on weak foundations? If so, consider what needs to be changed.

SATURDAY: Matthew 7:24-29 Teaching With Authority Jesus taught with understanding and authority because he was linked to God in powerful ways. Jesus was the embodiment of God’s love and grace. PRAYER: God of knowledge and understanding, as Scripture guides us and as Jesus teaches us, help us to be life-long learners of your Word.

“Practical Teaching”- May 6

Scripture: Matthew 7:24-29 (NLT)

“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, for he taught with real authority—quite unlike their teachers of religious law.
