Reflection questions for further engagement:

-Consider the condition of your relationship with Jesus today. Is there room for growth? Who will you connect with to help you and hold you accountable?
-What can you do today to help someone, pray for someone, encourage someone and spur someone on towards a stronger relationship with Jesus?
-How many today’s have you missed, looking forward to and planning for tomorrow?
