This is a new series we are starting on the attributes of God.

Selected Scriptures

Purpose: this session we looked at five truths concerning the truth that God is unique so that we would worship and cultivate a loving awe of God.

  1. General statement that God is unique
  2. God is different than humans
  3. There is Only One God

Note: Some Words before we begin this study.

Marty Machowski.  Parenting First Aid.  Greensboro, NC: New Growth Press, September 24, 2018. 240 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Are you a parent look for a Bible devotional concerning applications with parenting or maybe you are not a parent but you are looking for a devotional to give as a gift to a friend who is a Christian parent?  If this describes you I recommend this book.  I got this book since I know the publisher New Growth Press typically publish biblical and practical Christian living resources and this book definitely didn’t disappoint and is like the other titles they have: edifying, biblical and saturated with practical applications.  The author himself acknowledge how he himself is weak and really need God’s help for parenting through God’s Word and hence the title of this book as “Parenting First Aid.”  I appreciated the humility and vulnerability while reminding the readers to focus on God and being empowered by the Word of God and the Gospel.
