Read each statement. If the statement reflects something you knew before write a “K.” If the statement reflects something you learned, write a “L.” If the statement reflects something that deepened what you already knew, write a “D.” If the statement reflects something you want to learn more about, write a “W.”
K = KNEW
L = LEARNED
D = DEEPENED
W = WANT

- Do you catch yourself in Old Covenant thinking and entertaining thoughts like, “If I do something for God, He will do something for me.”?
What is a New Covenant statement or thought that you can use to replace Old Covenant habits of thinking?
Compare Deuteronomy 21:18-21 to Luke 11:11-13.
