Please pause to look up and read each passage listed and glance at my summary or questions. Make your own observations. Ask yourself about how you can apply that truth. Then set out a plan to do one thing about it.
Here’s a few questions to ask:
What do you hear? What do you see? What do you think? How do you feel? …about what you’re reading.

How does this make a difference? Why does this matter? …in your life.
