PSST Golden Text (GT) – How do we know we are moving in the right decision? Your students may be challenged with a decision where both options seem right, or they may be wondering how to know whether they are making meaningful progress in their lives.  Discuss with them this GT and in particular what it means for God's light and truth to lead.

PSST Responsive Reading (RR) – How does keeping God's law lead to liberty? What is God's law? How do your students define liberty? Look throughout the rest of the lesson for examples of God's law being followed and the liberty that results. Explore those examples with your students and what they might mean for our experiences today.

PSST Section 1 – How are truth and light similar? What do they offer to us as children of God?

PSST Section 2 – How does God help us to do valiantly? (Define valiantly with your students, and discuss how Gideon did valiantly and what God's role in that experience was) How can Mrs. Eddy say with conviction that Truth is always the victor? How have your students experienced the victory of Truth? Are there any situations where it seems like Truth is not the victor, to the human senses? What is really going on there?

PSST Section 3 – Activity: What are God's attributes? Mrs. Eddy gives a good start to a list of them. With your students, read through this section carefully and discuss what more could be added to this brief list.  Then spend some time thinking and discussing about where in our lives we see these attributes in action today.  Look for unexpected connections, strive to identify surprising examples that might have previously gone unnoticed.

PSST Section 4 – How did Christ bring grace and truth? What does that mean? Open up your Bibles to read this citation in its entirety for better context about what it means. And then use the rest of this section to explore this question.

PSST Section 5 – What is leaven?  What does it do?  What does it mean, then, for the kingdom of God to be like leaven hidden in three measures of meal? What does Mrs. Eddy mean when she refers to the leaven of Truth?

PSST Section 6 – Who or what is the Comforter that is promised in this section? What will this Comforter do for us? What examples are there of this Comforter's presence?
