Using Jesus’ sayings that we call the Beatitudes, The Power of a Focused Heart will guide users in simplifying their life by finding ways to say no to people in order to remain free to say yes to God. Brief chapters may be read in fifteen minutes followed by daily exercises in responding to Scripture. Guidance for one-hour small group meetings includes a detailed session plan for eight weekly meetings and a “Moving Deeper” exploration. The book also includes “Suggestions for Service” and “For Additional Reading.”
This study of the Beatitudes provides a strong basis for learning to live out of one’s own particular spiritual gifts. Eight chapters examine one beatitude each week with daily Bible readings, daily exercises and with complete teaching directions for the leader for one-hour small group sessions.
