Practices:

  • New Covenant – Jesus is the fulfillment of God’s covenant of perfect love for us

  • Book Value – not considering the nuance in Hebrew and Greek language
  • Reminder to pray – have conversation with God in 2-way walkie talkie way
  • Give Gratitude – every day list 3 things for which you are grateful

Scripture:

  • 1 John 4:18 – “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear…”
  • Matthew 8:23-27 – story of Jesus calming the storm
