When others cared for you, 1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:13

The lesson, “When others cared for you,” is based on 1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:13. This passage reveals the reality of spiritual warfare (see 2:18 and 3:5). Mark Rathel’s lesson commentary makes a point of Paul’s example of discipleship. He notes Satan’s number one strategy is to take advantage of our “busyness”.

Holding a discussion on busyness is one way to introduce the lesson. Certainly all of us have used the “too busy” excuse to care for others at one time or another.

Perhaps a way to start the lesson is to talk about our “list of things to get done.” What fails to make your list?

Still enjoying your blog weekly and all the links you provide for further study. Do you have a link for Wallace Henley's lesson sites? Really found his lesson a couple weeks back very helpful.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Hi Becky,

Wallace did not post commentary for the Dec 28, 2008 lesson. Sorry :-(

Hope your having a great Christmas celebration, too.
