Anyways, I made these cookies over a period of two days. I made the dough and then later baked it, and I’m really happy with the results. It seems light, even though its like pure butter and sugar, and my friends really enjoyed it! You can’t go wrong with matcha! The green tea powder was bought on Amazon. It’s pretty good quality, so I’d recommend it. I was going to use this cool cookie cutter I bought at World Market to make the cookies. But I ended up just making them into squares, for the sake of time. Enjoy!

1 Timothy 6:6-19
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain, 7 for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. 8 But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
Fight the Good Fight of Faith
11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, 14 to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,15 which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen. 17 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous andready to share, 19 thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold ofthat which is truly life.
If it feels like a fight for you right now, that’s because it is. In fact, I would say that if it doesn’t feel like a fight who are you actually following? Paul says, “this is a fight!” He’s describing what it should feel like. Each falling away from sin and turning to righteousness is going to be a mini victory. But FIGHT! And fight the good fight! -Pastor Tim Chaddick [RLA]
