After the man (Adam sinned), he tried to cover himself with the works of his own hands (how?). God took this away and gave him a covering of what? So this shows that people could not come to God by their own good works, but by what? (page 24) Look up Genesis 4:3-5. How does God ask Adam and Eve (and their children) to worship him? What picture does this give us of the promised Messiah?

Write Source 2000: Last week we read about the "Planet of Bad Thinkers," a place where the inhabitants never set goals, never ask questions, ignore evidence, believe whatever they read, and so on. We tried to turn those ideas around to list ways of "Becoming a Better Thinker." Section 309 describes how your mind circles around from simple to more complex tasks while you work on a project. Section 310 shows a chart of thinking "moves" from simple (observing, gathering) through more complex (rethinking, evaluating). Choose a real or imaginary problem similar to the examples in section 308 (How can I...Should I...Is doing this activity worthwhile...I've got to convince my parents that...), and try to come up with a solution by tracing your way through the chart. OR choose a picture book or children's story from our shelf, and show how the main character tries to solve a problem by using this kind of thinking process.
Put the books down and go for a walk.
