Keep it R.E.A.L.
Would you like more guidance about how to interpret Scripture and apply it to your daily life? Here are some REAL tips to help you get the most out of our daily devotions and readings.
R - Read.
Read the passage twice. After the first reading, pause and reflect, then read it again more slowly.
E - Evaluate.
What is new to me from this reading? What did I learn about God? About myself? About the world or other people? Any commands to obey, principles to follow, or promises to enjoy?
A - Apply.
Take 3 minutes in silent prayer. Ask God to show you how this Scripture can or should make a difference in your life. Ask if there is something specific you are supposed to do in response to what you've read.
L - Live.
Live into what God has revealed to you through this passage.
