As I prepare to teach, several possible directions to take the lesson typically occur to me. For example, for the lesson, “Renewing Commitment”, the busyness of our lives and how we are distracted in our relationship with the Lord is used in the lesson plan for Renewing Commitment by Jeff Meyer from Bayleaf Baptist Church. Alternately, you could emphasize how not to respond when you are wronged (Jacob’s sons reacted by murdering their sister’s rapist, for example). This is suggested in the lesson commentary by Sam Tullock. Again, the text permits a lesson approach based on how to properly dedicate something to the Lord. This idea is suggested by lesson comments from Jan Freeman Hixson, First Church of Springdale. Have you decided how you will approach this week’s lesson and what focus you’ll take?
