1. Look to Christ through His Word

Friend, if you do nothing else on this list, I beg you: pursue Christ through the study of his Word. You will never fully know yourself apart from knowing him, because each of us is made in his image, to glorify and follow him all the days of our lives. Your identity is so rooted in Christ that without knowing Christ, you can’t hope to know yourself. So make a habit of spending time with Jesus each day, through the study of Scripture and through prayer. Nothing will fill you with more purpose and joy than that.
