We had a great Bible study around the campfire in which we talked about the canoeing trip and the spiritual lessons that came from it such as unity in Christ, teamwork, discernment, course corrections, joy, fellowship, avoiding hazards, and more. I spoke for a few minutes about Hebrews 3:13 and the power & purpose of encouragement. God's Word says, "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.". The greatest encouragement that we can ever be to another individual comes directly from our courageous obedience to God and His Word. It also comes from when we share with others what God is teaching us. When we live out the Word of God it encourages & inspires others to want to do the same. That encouragement will help prevent other people's heart from becoming discouraged and hardened.
Following our campfire time is outdoor movie night!! The featured movie is... National Treasure 2!!! We have a bed sheet hung between 2 trees and a projector & sound system hooked up to a generator. It's going to be a good night!!
