➤ The Seed You Sow —Growth begins with the sowing of seed. That is true in the garden. It is also true in the spiritual kingdom of Heaven.
➤ The Aims You Set —This is about the point and purpose of our lives, and about our goals, and sacrifices.
➤ The Interests You Pursue —This is about how we spend our time. There are three headings: time wise, time waste, and time warp.
➤ The Habits You Nurture —Principles involved in forming the habits necessary for living in love and simplicity.
➤ The Taboos You Observe —Finally we think about about the religious rules and taboos that people impose on themselves and others.

➤ Is That “Dead” Church Really Dead? —It's easy to visit a small struggling church, notice the empty seats and the lacklustre worship, make your hasty judgment, and pronounce that church dead. But is it dead?
➤ Itching Ears, Itching Palms, Itching Feet —We all get an itch at times. It may be an itch that goes away with a scratch. Some people have an itch that is severe and very distressing. But the itches I want to talk about are spiritual itches. They are described metaphorically as itching ears, itching palms, and itching feet. However these are metaphors for itchings of the soul.
➤ Choked by Thorns, Bearing No Fruit —Is your life a rat race? Are you running around in circles, struggling with all of this world's demands, and bearing no fruit spiritually? Is the spiritual seed in you choked by thorns?
➤ Aspirational Christians —The aspirations of Christians are also expectations. We truly believe that we will achieve them without a doubt. God has provided the resources for us to meet the challenges and succeed in our aspirations. This lesson looks at three of the top goals of the “aspirational Christian”.
