“Love your neighbor as yourself”. These words are found in the Old and New Testament. So is it any easier to do today than it was centuries ago?

When a question is answered, it can bring up many more questions. In today’s lesson we work at answering these many many questions.
All people have dreams and desires for their lives. To reach these they set goals of all kinds. When the goals are not met, when the goals slip away, when the goals are crushed by life’s circumstances what then? How does God help at these times?
There are times in everyone’s life that one will be doing nothing, nothing at all. Some people choose this, like when on vacation. Other times it is not a choice. In-activity is placed upon us, like it or not. Yet in today’s lesson we will learn that as a Christian we are always in motion.
No matter what a person does or says, things don’t always work out well. So what does a person do then? Also, when people you thought you could count on let you down, what do you do then? Listen and learn how Paul handled these things.
Paul’s experience at Philippi was not good. He was whipped and thrown into jail. Yet he remembers the people and Thanks God for them. In today’s lesson, we look at what drove and guided Paul.
Jesus commanded his disciples to take the message of salvation into all the world. The church in the city of Philippi was the first church in Europe. It had a rough beginning. How did it survive or do?
Most people in the United States are familiar with the song “The 12 Days of Christmas”. It seems to be about a wealthy man who gave a lot of birds to someone. Could there be more to the song than that? And why 12 days and not just 10 days?
