Friday’s List to Live By #2

Last week we began a 13 week trial with a new column “Friday’s List to Live By.” It will feature short, succinct, bullet-like points to provide food for thought and future consideration.

If you missed the first post it was “The Greatest Reasons for Faith” based on John 3:16.

Today’s post addresses your need for spiritual disciplines in your life adapted from author, marriage counselor, and seminar speaker Dr. Steve Stephens.


1. Prayer
“Pray without ceasing.”

2. Meditation
“I will meditate on Your precepts, And contemplate Your ways.”

3. Silence
Be still and know that God is near.

4. Simplicity
Celebrate life’s simple things and moments.

5. Bible reading
Read, study, and grow.

6. Church attendance
Gather weekly with other believers.

7. Daily Praise
Glorify God in all you do.

8. Giving and Serving
Develop a servant’s heart.

9. Confession
Confess your sins to one another.”

10. Thanksgiving
“In everything give thanks”

11. Contentment
Learn to be content regardless of the circumstances.

12. Forgiveness
Forgive others as God has forgiven you.

13. Harmony

This ought to keep you busy for a while.

Have a great day everyone.
