Hello there, you smart, wonderful, and awesome Enthusers! Have you had a great day? I hope you have. Today, we want to give you a bible verse to learn for this coming week. It is 2 Timothy 1:7. It says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (NKJV). The Easy-to-Read Version says, “The Spirit God gave us does not make us afraid. His Spirit is a source of power and love and self-control.” What does that mean for us today? God does not want us to be afraid. He wants us to have courage. In our lesson this week, Peter did not show courage. Instead, he was afraid to tell people that he was Jesus’s friend. He made a mistake. Peter cried, but Jesus forgave him. Since God wants us to have courage, we should choose courage. The devil, our enemy, wants us to be afraid. Thumbs down for the devil! Thumbs up to God and Jesus who want us to be brave.
