- Pray — Pray for yourself (1 Thessalonians 5:17), for others (1 Timothy 2:1-2), and with Thanksgiving (Colossians 3:17).
- Read — Read the Word of God revives and purifies the soul (Psalm 19:7-9); it educates the mind (Psalm 119:99).
- Meditate — This is not an act to “complete.” It’s a considerate way of life (Psalm 63:6). Spend time considering what God’s Word actually says, both in general and in particular, as you think, live, and interact in your world. In other Words, consciously take God with you throughout your day.
- Practice — James reminds us that we’re not only to read and consider God’s Word but also to do what we’ve learned (James 1:22; 4:17).
If you haven’t already, I hope that you can begin incorporating these simple but powerful disciplines into your daily routine. This is a to-do list that yields a great sense of personal accomplishment for every Christian.
