The Finer Point
This week's lesson study provides numerous points of emphasis. You might decide to teach from the perspective of what it was like to be a disciple of Jesus from day to day. You may choose instead to focus on the theme of rest, and lightly cover the other themes. there are more nagles to explore in this lesson, to be sure, but you would probably do well to pick one and develop that one.
For instance, studies are beinning to show that today's hyperconnected teens are suffering from sleeplessness, exhaustion, depression, extreme narcissism, and other maladies due to what some are calling technology overload. Emphasizing the need for rest, balance and discipline is extremely important.
Try to get across one important poin and the scriptures that support that point.
