7th Grade Bible Assignments; May 11-15

May 10, 2020     Pat Carpenter    

Monday

This week you will be writing out some scriptures.  It will be from the scripture memory passages we did not get to this year. Please check your picture before you send it.  Some of you use a pencil lead that is so light that I have trouble figuring out your answers.  If you cannot see your writing clearly then neither can I.  I will have to ask you to rewrite your scripture so that I can see what you have written.  Thanks.

Today and tomorrow you will be writing out a doxology about God.  You may write each scripture passage in whichever version of the Bible you like to use.  In today’s passage Paul praises God for His wisdom and judgment.  It echoes what Isaiah 55: 8-9 says:

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

So as you write out Romans 11:33-34 as your assignment, remember that God’s methods and means may be beyond our comprehension at times, but He is our Creator and He governs the universe and our lives with perfect love, justice, and wisdom.  We can trust that God is in control even when we don’t understand all that is going on.

Tuesday

Have you practiced thankfulness during this pandemic?  Write out Romans 11:35-36.  Remember that all the “stuff” we say is ours comes from God.  It is He who gives skills, talents, and abilities to be able to earn an income, read, write, think, etc.

Wednesday

Today’s scripture verse deals with what we do with our time, talents, skills, and abilities.  Write out 1 Corinthians 10:31.  I hope you will engrave these words on your heart.

Thursday

Today’s scripture comes from Matthew 25.  This passage is one that I have written on my heart.  It reminds me that how I treat others is viewed by Christ as treating Him that way.  What we say and do to family, friends, and even those we don’t like are included in today’s and tomorrow’s scripture.  For today write out Matthew 25: 40.

Friday

Write out Matthew 25: 45.

About Pat Carpenter

My credentials: B.S. in Elementary Education (grades 1-9); Masters in Education; 45 hours of additional graduate work. After 36 years in the classroom, I retired from public schools with Career Ladder III certification and rated as highly qualified to teach middle school science and language arts. I started teaching a TOCS in the fall of 2011. Family: My husband, George, and I exchanged wedding vows in 1972. We have two daughters--Anne and Aimee. Anne works in Nashville for the Health Department and Aimee is a registered nurse at Johnson City Medical Center. My faith: I was raised in church. I accepted Christ as my Savior as a child. The older I get, the more I realize that I can do nothing without Christ, but I can do all He wants me to do in His strength. With every word and deed, I am accountable to Christ. I take the education of each child very seriously. I teach whole heartedly as unto Christ. It is the Lord Christ I serve. Interests: Outside of the classroom I like to hike. I love looking at God's creation as I hike on a trail and just praising Him for His creation. My favorite form of praise is singing. I am active in my church choir and sing occasional solos, which allows me to share a part of my testimony with others.
