Even if you attend church and Bible study every Sunday, manifesting faith in your daily life can be challenging. Fortunately, God doesn't expect grand gestures of faith every day. Here are ways to integrate the teachings of the Bible into your life with a few small acts.
How Can You Incorporate Your Catholic Faith Into Your Life?
1. Pray the Rosary
Praying the Rosary is an act of devotion that brings attention back to the mysteries of Jesus for a few moments. Schedule a time to meditate on all 20 mysteries and set an alarm to help make it a habit. You can also pray a decade of Hail Mary's while waiting to pick up your kids or before leaving for work in the morning.
2. Be Kind
Christians should embody the virtues of humility and care for their fellow men, so smile, listen when others speak, and be courteous when interacting with others. Whether you're at work, church, or the grocery store, always remember what Jesus said, "whatsoever you do to the least of your brothers and sisters, you do unto me."
Being open and generous with love is an often-overlooked Christian virtue. Tell family and friends that you love them and let them know why. This may only take a moment of your time but could make someone else's day.
3. Journal With the Bible
Developing an intimate relationship with the Bible manifests its wisdom into your daily life. Start by reading a passage and ask God to open your mind to its meaning. After rereading it a few times, open a journal and start writing down the ideas that have come to you. This lets you browse through previous thoughts later to see how God has spoken to and through you.
4. Be Open About Your Relationship With God
Many people are open about the sports teams and the music they love but are shy about their relationship with the Lord. Take any opportunity to talk about God with your friends, family members, or colleagues. This helps make God and the Bible part of your daily life, rather than something you only participate in at church.
