5. Talk about God
Make God a part of your whole day, not just your prayer time. Bring Him into conversations with friends, family, even co-workers if you can. We talk about things we love – movies, restaurants, people… but we often fail to talk about God in the same way.
6. Sacrifice something
It’s so important that we learn to make daily sacrifices and offer them up to the Lord. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy. Eat bread with no butter. Turn off the radio and drive in silence. It’s the little things that cultivate our holiness and help us to overcome our attachment to things of the world.
7. Serve in some way
Look for a way to serve someone everyday. Again, this doesn’t have to be something major like heading to Africa on service trip. It can be doing the dishes for your mom, paying for a stranger’s coffee, or picking up garbage as you walk down the street. Don’t let a day go by in which you did not do something for someone else.
8. Reflect on your day
At the end of every day, take a few minutes to think back over the day. An examination of conscience is a great way to do this. Is there someone you need to forgive? Is there someone you need to seek forgiveness from? Think about the ways in which the Lord provided for you and be thankful for His many blessings. Thank Him! Ask yourself, did I move closer to or further from God through my actions today?
