FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… 1 high and 1 low. What are you thankful for? What didn’t go so well today?|
|Read… You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself. (Luke 10:27)|
|Talk… about the verse in light of your high and low… in light of your day. Who is your neighbor? What does it look like for you to love your neighbor as you love yourself?|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other with a word of affirmation. Make the sign of the cross on each other and say to each other: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
