Look back through each of the twelve lessons. Remember: the purpose of your study is to learn. Understand the learning process. We learn when (1) we gain new information, (2) we discover new insights, or (3) we gain new understandings. The Christian's objective in learning spiritual truths is (1) to change our thinking, (2) to mature our faith, and (3) to allow God to control our hearts and our behavior. We study to advance our spiritual maturity. When our thoughts, emotions, and understandings change, our behavior changes.
As you look back over the lessons, consider (1) the things you now know and understand that you did not know prior to the study; (2) the new insights you gained through the study; and (3) the things you understand in more depth and clarity because of the study. As you consider each lesson, write down two understandings about being a Christian steward. Why did those understandings touch your mind and heart?
