Guess who totally forgot all about sending this out yesterday! THIS GIRL!!! It didn’t even cross my mind until I was brushing my teeth before bed, and at that point I said, “Tomorrow is Sabbath, so we’ll just switch it up a bit and make today the Sabbath and tomorrow a reading day.”
Sorry guys. Looks like I’m as unpredictable as they get.
I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified. 1 Corinthians 9:27
For today, there is no reading other than your Bible. Take the time you would normally spend reading and spend it instead, memorizing the word of God. For today we recommend you look up (in your favorite translation) 1 Corinthians 9:27, write it on a note card or sticky note and then say it out loud 7 times or until you can say it from memory. For me, I learn better by saying them as I write them several times. We also recommend that you memorize the “address” (1 Corinthians 9:27) as well, so that in the future you can look it up easily or refer other people to it quickly.
Now when (notice I did not say “if”) you are tempted, if at all possible, say this verse out loud. This is important. In those moments of temptations, if you are able to roll these words right off your tongue it will make Temptation flee! Really. You’ll see.
