The July Challenge!

As we head into July, we’ll be looking at a way to put into practice one of the most foundational principles in God’s Word: learning and applying the truth. As we’re encouraged by King Solomon in the book of Proverbs, we’re going to work on “Tak[ing] fast hold of instruction” as if our lives depend on it (Proverbs 4:13), and doing so by writing things down to help us remember (Proverbs 7:3).

So, here’s our challenge for this month: Write down something you’ve learned each day this month in a notebook or journal!

Some examples:

  • Something that stood out to you in God’s Word
  • A “life lesson” from an experience during the day
  • A piece of wisdom or instruction (correction/reproof) you got from someone
  • Some new fact or information (from school, research, etc.) from the day
  • We suggest you use a pocket-sized notebook to make it easier to write down things as you get the opportunity to—research shows this actually helps our brains remember better!

Also, for the very first time, this month’s challenge comes with a contest! Head on over to our contests page to find out how you could win one of two prize packs or our grand prize, including a subscription to Log and Jotter notebooks and a Fisher Space Pen!

As always, our goal with the challenge is not to simply “check it off,” but to use it as a springboard to learn the lessons God is teaching us through the everyday. And by learn, we’re talking about actually applying them, and seeking God’s guidance for how we need to change to become more like the men He’s called us to be. We’re looking forward to learning along with you as we seek the Lord together this month!

Be sure and check out our challenges page for more information!

  1. I didn’t know about the lighthouse patterns of paint and light flashes! That really makes sense! I will be looking out for things in my Bible reading that are like those patterns seen afar off.
