Numbers: Learning Contentment in a
Culture of More is a
6-week study comparing our own dissatisfaction with our life
circumstances to the grumbling of the Israelites as God leads them
out of slavery.
By exploring Numbers we can come to identify
the reasons for our complaining, learn contentment while being
authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship
in light of the greater good of God's ultimate deliverance,
recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and
discover how to realign with God's character and promises.
