Press On in Wisdom ~ Virtual VBS 2019 Week Three
Hey Sweet Friends, it’s Week Three of Virtual VBS for GrownUp Girls®! This week our theme is Press On in Wisdom.
READ: Philippians Chapter Three. You can read this chapter every day (or every day in a different translation!) or focus on 3-4 verses at a time.
NOTE: Paul talks about understanding what (in this life) is of value or significance — and what isn’t. He gives us some pretty clear direction about what our focus and/or priorities should be. Do you feel you have a good sense of this in your own life right now? Are there areas you may need to refocus or make adjustments?
REFLECT: Use the following prompts to reflect on this week’s chapter and record your answers in your notebook or journal.
I know this is going to seem obvious (the easy answer is “everything”), but try it anyway. Re-read Philippians 3:5-11, and then make a list of all the things you can think of (including those that are important, valuable, even precious) that ultimately mean less to you than knowing Christ. Make your list specific to your own life.
As you read through Chapter Three, think about where you need to press on in wisdom in your life today… What do you need to focus on or prioritize? What do you need to “forget” or let go of to more fully answer God’s call and follow where He leads?
MEMORIZE: Philippians 3:13b-14 in the translation of your choice.
PS: If you’ve fallen behind or started late, no worries! You can take a few minutes to catch up by reading Philippians Chapters 1-2 or just start where we are, in Chapter Three!
