LESSON 3: THE GOAL OF THE SOUL
What Is the Goal of the Soul?
Our souls were built for relationship with God. That relationship once founded in Christ, can either be cultivated or neglected. Remember back to your childhood for a moment. When you learned to turn cartwheels or dive headfirst into the pool, did you shout, “Daddy! Look at me”? How about when you got good grades, your first job, or got engaged? In a healthy father-child relationship it is natural to want to please Dad. How much more so our perfect heavenly Father? Cultivating our relationship with God means aiming to please him out of love, not obligation. When we love God with our soul we are pleased to please Him. Take a nice slow read of the following two passages and then prayerfully reflect on how we can help the kids cultivate their soul relationship with the Father.Download Soul, Lesson 3
