Excellent Bible Study Help: Tim Keller said these are five questions he asks of a biblical text as he reads it for himself:
(1) How can I praise him?
(2) How can I confess my sins on the basis of this text?
(3) If this is really true, what wrong behavior, what harmful emotions or false attitudes result in me when I forget this? Every problem is because you have forgotten something. What problems are you facing?
(4) What should I be aspiring to on the basis of this text?
(5) Why is God telling me this today?
