For You This Week
To Try This Week:
Each day this week, pick a primary verse (a promise to remember, a command to obey, a summary verse) from each section you read. Write it out on a notecard and carry it with you throughout your days. Read it as often as you can. Turn it into a prayer. At the end of the week, review all of them and note any connections or things that God is teaching you.
This Week’s Reading:
M: 1 Corinthians 5, 1 Chronicles 11-13, Psalm 73
T: 1 Corinthians 6, 1 Chronicles 14-16, Proverbs 29
W: Catch up, 1 Chronicles 17-19, Psalm 74
Th: 1 Corinthians 7, 1 Chronicles 20-22, Proverbs 29
F: 1 Corinthians 8, 1 Chronicles 23-25, Psalm 75
