1Corinthians 13

  1. Begin by praying for the Holy Spirit’s guidance as you determine God’s will for your life from this meditation on his word.
  2. Read Romans 12:1-3, 9-21. Read it several times until you are acquainted with its content. St. Paul here gives several things that a growing Christian ought to be and do.
  3. First of all, write your reaction to “getting advice” on how you should be developing as a Christian. How do you feel, and how do you handle “being told what to do”? (googledoc)
  4. Secondly, make a list of the different things Paul says a growing Christian should do. (googledoc)
  5. Now make this personal. Think about what you need to work on. Put Paul’s “advice” in terms of your own relationships with parents, friends. mothers, sisters, pastors, teachers, and any other of God’s people with whom you live and work. Go over your list in #4 with each of several people in mind.
  6. As you come to something that you need to work on, pray that God will give you the help you know you need. Talk to God as honestly and as sincerely as you would to any of your friends.
  7. Finally, write a letter to yourself (googledoc). Write about some of the things you’ve just prayed about and want to work on during the next four months.
  8. If you would like to spend more time by yourself in reflection and meditation, read Matthew 5 and 6.
