Journaling James


Remember to spend some time on your own reading through & journaling James this week. Come ready to discuss on Wednesday! Here are a few things to think about as you journal James.

1. What values are important in your life?

Think about some core values you want to exemplify, and that you want to see from others in your life. Which ones are most important to you? Loyalty? Reliability? Truth? Compassion? Knowledge? Courage? Optimism? As you write notes on James, analyze advice that James will have about these values & how they should be applied in your life.

2. What are your personal strengths and weaknesses?

Write down a few areas you are gifted in, and a few you believe you could improve. Journaling James will help you find advice on how to use your talents, and tips to overcome weaknesses. Jot down, highlight, or underline passages for both as you go along, making notes for yourself.

3. Strengthening relationships

Write down where relationships with the most important people in your life are at, as well as where you want them to be. Who do you need to try and start/repair a relationship with? As you study James, analyze it for advice on how to improve or start those relationships. 

4. How do you spend your time?

Each week has 7 days or 168 hours, how do you devote that time in order to balance your life? How should you devote that time? As you study James, make notes on how to manage your time, and how to make time for what’s truly important.
