Memory Verse :
1 Chronicles 28:9New International Version (NIV)“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.

Bible Lesson :
Simon the Sorcerer Tries To Buy The Holy Spirit
When we have no map, nothing helping to guide us to our treasure, it is very easy to get and be lost. In the movie Jim is making bad decisions and getting into trouble, and Simon has no idea how the Holy Spirit works and decides that buying it is the best plan. Each of their decisions will likely lead them to death. Peter is gracious and truthful enough to inform Simon of his mistake as well as the possible repercussions and calling for him to repent, but without that 'piece of a may' Simon would have been lost again. Let us trust in the words of David to his son Solomon that if we are in search of the Lord we WILL find Him. This assures us that no matter how unprepared we are, if we just have the desire to search for Him, we will be given everything needed to find Him!
