Reply to "The Book of 2 Peter Chapter 1- Lesson Ideas for adults"

Looking forward to seeing how you work it out.

Just so happened that I was posting the following meme with comments and a song in our Prayer Resources topic this morning. 

prayer-meme

The spiritual point of view implicit in the meme stands in contrast to 2 Peter's "do this and this" approach to faith "to possess these qualities in increasing measure."  "...if you do these things, you will never stumble..."   2 Peter's approach is a sort of "spirituality by works," whereas, the meme leans more in the direction of what Paul wrote in Philippians that Christ being found in human form emptied himself and humbled himself.  I can relate to that because I find myself in "human form" all too often! ...and in need of spiritual rest and comfort from that (Matthew 11:28-30).

There are several rich and divergent traditions to "spiritual practices" -- each with its scriptural underpinnings, and each of which may be a better match for some people, situations, and times of life.
