Inscribe the Word * November Scripture Writing Plan
Each November as we gather around the table, we say a prayer before our dinner. We give thanks for the joy, we give thanks for the gifts we have received, and we give thanks for the strength to make it through another year. We take a "New Year" approach to Thanksgiving, don't we? We reminisce, we plan ahead, and we give thanks for the present. As we prepare for the season of thanks yet again, I find myself looking back to see what it was that me through the good times and the bad.
The family was crucial for us in this season. As this year progressed, we turned inward and relied on one another for strength, hope, and love. In doing so, not only were we able to carry each other through the hard times, but we all became closer than ever before.
When your family goes around the table this year, what will you be thankful for? For me, I am grateful to be a part of a family that holds God higher than anything.
I am thankful to be a part of a family that is open and honest with one another.
I am thankful for a family that I can depend upon in a time of need.
I am thankful for a family that loves unconditionally.
I am thankful for a God that has seen fit to gift me with such a family.
This November, Inscribe the Word will focus on family and what family represents within God's Word. We have put together a collection of verses and commands that encapsulate God's view on His design for those we hold dear.
I hope that in these verses you gain an understanding of family and it's associated values regardless of your personal structure. Whether you have a family, a stepfamily, an adopted family, or the closest of friends whom you consider family we hope that you see and celebrate their worth this season.
Be sure that as you study these Scriptures that you are reading these chapters and verses in context. We never want you to just hunt and peck for Scriptures without knowing their context. Knowing the what, who, where, when, and how behind a verse is really important to understand the full meaning. A great way to understand the verse in context is by using the W.O.R.D Bible Study Method to really get to the “meat” of the verse. You can find the W.O.R.D. Method HERE and our workbook that goes along with this method HERE.
