These kind of questions (except with more Bible verses!) are available every week for you to
use during your Bible study time. Lessons correspond with three of Lifeway's series. I have

card to and why you selected them.
- Let's memorize Hebrews 10.24 - 25 together. (1)
- Why do we all need encouragement?
- Why do we need encouragement daily?
- How many notes of encouragement do you receive in a typical year?
- Which is better-a card, a phone call, a gift, a text, or an email? Why so? (2)

1. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage
one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:25 (NIV)
2. Which ever one you will do. A hand written note might be better than an email, but if you will
do an email and you won't get around to the note, email is better.
3. You might buy cards in bulk so you have the around the house.
