Even if we are determined to live differently, for some reason (it probably has something to do with sin) we end up slipping back into our old patterns. It’s not enough for us to just want to do the right thing, we need to have a plan, a process, along with some kind of accountability that will help us follow through.
Scriptures: Proverbs 3:1-3; 2 Corinthian 8:16—9:5; Mark 10:17-31; Psalm 62

My Next Steps
Point to Ponder: Good intentions don’t always translate into God pleasing actions. Has this been the case also in your life? Why or why not?
Treasure to Share: “It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose” (Philippians 2:13).
Action to Take: To become more generous, choose one area of life where you want to become more disciplined which you think will have the biggest impact on your life. For example: time priorities, spending habits, budgeting, daily devotions, or prayer life.
