Gentleness POHFW

Preparing our Hearts to Worship


In an effort to help you prepare for the November 10, 2019, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on What God wants us to Believe, Do, and Become. I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “Gentleness”. The main Scriptures for the day are the 1Kings 12:1-14 and John 8:1-11.

(Pick and choose from the many resources and options, which I have tried to make available for your devotional life.)


From the Scriptures


Please read through Chapter 29 of Believethis week, this is an edited selection of Scriptures from the NIV that seeks to show how certain beliefs, ways of living and character qualities are elaborated upon throughout all of Scripture.

You may also like to read and reflect upon these other New Testament passages Proverbs 15:1.
