Psalm 1:1-6. What simple practices can I follow to become a man who meditates on God's law day and night (verse 2)? How can I do that without being legalistic?
Ezra 7:1-28. Meeting the title character of this book for the first time and learning (verse 10, KJV) that he "prepared his heart" to be the godly man of Psalm 1, how might I prepare my own?
III John 1:1-14. So focused on how to prosper materially, by what means and metrics could I focus more on prospering my soul (verse 2, KJV)? What would that look like on this very day?
Luke 12:13-21. Another view of soul-prosperity: What preoccupations of mine might brand me "thou fool" in the Father's sight (verse 20, KJV)? What accounting method can I adopt in becoming, rather, "rich toward God" (verse 21)?
