Psalms 51:1-19. Verse 13, how can I be of more use to God today in teaching his ways to the learner, converting the lost? First step?
Deuteronomy 29:1-29. Verse 5, am I clear that when on pilgrimage for God, he meets all my needs large and small? Application for here and now?
Hebrews 11:1-7. Verse 6 KJV, in what particulars might a wise elder, sizing up my way of life, conclude I am less than diligent in seeking God? Action point?
Matthew 8:18-22. Verse 21, related point, what excuses do I make to Jesus? What's the cost of dropping those and going all in for him? First step?
