Preparing Study Chapter 6

Three Types of Women:

Hey Ya’ll! As we move into chapter 6 each of you should look up the word “Example” in the dictionary and do a Word search in your Bible. Then let’s talk about what YOU think it means. I did some of the Bible searches and it was really cool to see some examples of “example” 🙂

In I Peter 2:21-22 We read the Jesus is an example to us and that we should follow in His steps. He did no sin and there was no guile found in His mouth.

In John 13:14-15 Jesus is another example for us when He washes the feet and tells us to do the same.

And the in I Timothy 4:12 It says “Let no man despise thy youth ; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

One definition of example is “A pattern or model of something to be imitated or avoided”

That is HUGE as a Christians! We need to strive to be something that someone would want to imitate and benefit from imitating. As Christians we are the light of the world shining for all to see, something that people should desire to have. You need to be an example to young Christians and unbelievers of what a Christian really in.  These are just a few searches from the bible on the word example there are many more to be studied and gather information on!

    My Dad,
    He is a Prophet,He always wants to try something new and When he has an idea he wants to stick to it.He is also a King because he is the head of the house an handles it well:).
    My little brother 9th with 9 sisters.Is so far a King type,He’s only 4 and is a lot like my dad.
    A friends brother (12 yr old)is a Priest. Full Priest with just a hint of Prophet:D. He is very careful and wants to do everthing right. Like one day he asked his mom if the Bible said anything about bad music and Movies (touch not the unclean thing)( He and his sister got saved first and then their parents got saved) Anyway, she told him yes he left the room and the next thing his mom heard was a crashing noise from his room. He was throwing away everything that was bad. I guess he has some Prophet in him to.

    Definition of example in the dictionary:
    1 a thing characteristic of its kind or illustrating a general rule : it’s a good example of how European action can produce results | some of these carpets are among the finest examples of the period. See note at model .
    • a printed or written problem or exercise designed to illustrate a rule.
    2 a person or thing regarded in terms of their fitness to be imitated or the likelihood of their being imitated : it is vitally important that parents should set an example | she followed her brother’s example and deserted her family.

    I think that an example is something we should strive toward or avoid completely. Oh, I just thought of Proverbs 31! The woman in Proverbs 31 is an example we should strive toward as women and homemakers, respectively.

    Example in the bible: 1 Peter 5:2-4 says “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being EXAMPLES to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.”

    Ice Breaker:

    My Dad is a Priestly type. He is very steady, easygoing. But he has a little of a Prophet in him. He is very focused when he gets a project. I think all men have a little of all three in them, with one predominating trait. =)

    This study is a great opportunity for the girls and women of this generation! Thanks for making this possible!

    Hello Gals!

    We need to get on with this study, so I am encouraging you all to join in.

    My hubby as you all know is a Mr. Command/stable Visionary type of guy. My brother is definitely a Mr. Visionary. My father is clearly a Mr. Steady. I think I am raising a Mr. Visionary, a Mr. Command/Steady?, and another Mr. Command, but won’t know for sure for some years from now. 🙂

    As for my thoughts about being an example, what has been on my mind today was what Mr. Mike Pearl said in his article – “Where do I go from here?” I hope it is okay to post a little portion of what he wrote in that article here:

    ” It has been 35 years now, and I am not as pushy as I once was. I am not as quick to try to straighten out the thinking of others. Some time ago, I determined that if the life of Christ in me does not demand an explanation, then I shouldn’t exclaim so much. If Christ in me does not make me love more, be more patient, and more understanding of the faults of others, what do I have to offer? If my discovery of Biblical doctrine makes me reject other believers simply because they are presently where I was before I saw the light, could it not be said by onlookers that my doctrine of sanctification by faith has made me judgmental and sectarian—maybe a little bit self-righteous?

    My advice to those of you who have discovered life-changing truth through my Bible teaching is to let your new message be your changed life. If your friends don’t see the change, you don’t have anything to offer. When they ask why you are out front telling sinners about Jesus, why you suddenly rejoice in the Lord more, why you are giving more to missions, why you spend more time with your family, why your wife is praising you so fervently, why you never miss a church meeting, but are praying fervently for your pastor, why you are visiting the sick and going to the local jail and the old folks home, then you can try to teach them a Bible doctrine that is different from the one that has left them living in sin. In short, keep your mouth shut until your life demands an explanation. ”

    This is a very honest and challenging encouragement for me. He says it all for what I have been thinking and struggling with as of late. The interesting thing that this article challenges me is to not just be an example to those in my community or church…but it has really challenged me to show the life of Christ to my husband and children on a daily basis as we live life together through the joys and especially the difficulties. I find it easier to be an example to those in public, but my family sees the real me. They see who I really am in the every day routine of life. And I ask myself…what are they seeing in me? For me, it is a very humbling thought and prayer.
