UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE: We are often discouraged in the face of negative circumstances over which we seem to have no control. How can we experience the positive transformations we long for? Jesus taught the disciples to pray for God’s kingdom to be manifested in their lives and in all creation.
CONCLUDING REFLECTION: We honor God the most when we exhibit the qualities found in the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). Just as God is holy, we are also called to a life of holiness (1 Peter 1:16).Not only are we called to speak the prayer taught by Jesus, but we are also called to live out the practical principles of this prayer in the events of our everyday lives.
PRAYER: LORD, make us instruments of your peace and play us like you want to play us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
