PRE CLASS: students present work done over the week for instructor’s critique.
OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: Proverbs 16:3 "Commit to the Lord what ever you do and your plans will succeed." (I don't remember if I already used this one but it is such a treasured thought I personally come to it often). This verse is a promise from God that if we commit to him what ever we do we will have success. But we must remember if we are committing to God whatever we do it should be our best, or else it would be an insult to God, it must be done humbly, reverently, and unselfishly . If we honor God in our lives He will honor us.
