Practice

During this week ask these questions of the text:

  • What bothers me?
  • What encourages me?
  • What challenges me?
  • What am I being called to do this week?

Focus especially on the last two questions. Write down one practical thing you can do this week in response to these readings. Set a time. Act.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” –Jesus, Matthew 7:24
