This teaching is a good reminder to keep our minds on God’s Word and that God knows more than we do. God’s Word has a promise for anything we need; we can learn those verses and let them permeate our hearts and minds. We are often caring and patient with others, so let’s be patient with our own frailties too. As a practical exercise in applying what was taught, at the beginning, before the teaching began, each person was given an index card and was asked write something on it that they “hated” about themselves. Then, at the end of the teaching, the teacher read what people wrote (without mentioning who they were) and the group all contributed verses that that person could apply to think God’s Word of him or herself.
