This daily Bible study guide has a great format that is the same throughout the book.
First, that are Scriptures to read. Only one verse is pointed out, but you can read the verses nearby to provide context to what is being discussed.
Next, there is a section called Understand. There are typically 2-4 questions to ponder that you can quickly answer, but I found myself thinking back to the later on too.
Then, there is a section called Apply. Here is where you have an action to do after reading and thinking about the topic for that day. I found them to be a check-up in considering what I am doing. Can I learn from what I read? Am I doing alright in this area or is there something I need to change?
Last, you are given called to Pray. I found this to be helpful because sometimes you just don't know what to say. Of course, you can pray however you wish, but this can be helpful too.
I liked this book and the way it was laid out. It truly will not take any longer than 5 minutes to complete, but I think some of the topics will have you stop and consider throughout the day. It's great if you have just a bit of free time and not a lot of time to devote to a Bible study.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
