Monday: Read Mark 3:14 (NIV). Why did Jesus want his disciples to be with Him? Why is quality time with Jesus still important in our day? When you think of your love language, where in a ranking of 1 as the highest and 5 as the lowest is quality time? Think of someone you love, where do you think that person would rank quality time as their love language?
Tuesday: Read Psalm 90:1 (NIV). How does God’s love for you, help you to make quality time for others? Looking back at yesterday, what were your quality time (“undivided attention”) moments? Looking ahead at today, what potential quality time moments are you building into your schedule?
Wednesday: Read John 13:34 (NIV). In John 13, Jesus washes feet. How does such a view of love, as Jesus lives out, resonate with what you have learned about love? Jesus’ emphasis is not on foot washing as much as a call to lovingly care for others. How is Jesus calling you to invest your time to express love to others?
Thursday: Read Psalm 90:12 (NIV). In numbering days, where have you followed the world’s plan to fall in love? How did that work out? Where have you followed God’s plan to grow in love? How is that working out?
Friday: Read James 1:19 (NIV). What battles against your quality time with others? Phone? Media? Overloaded schedule? What advice does James offer to build deep relationships? How do you see yourself living out that advice today?
Saturday: Read Psalm 90:17 (NIV). God loves us with an “all in” kind of love. Where have you seen such love at work in your life? Where is God calling you to bring such love to someone else’s life?
