Psalm 25:1-22.  What is the secret of the Lord (verse 14, KJV)? When and how did I come to know it? What am I doing about it in my daily life?

I Corinthians 1:1-17. What opportunity can I find today, within my church or with another church, to heal divisions among the believers (verse 10)?

John 5:1-16. When have I mistakenly limited God's generosity, or my eligibility for it, when all he wanted was my "yes" (verses 4-7)? How did it turn out
