Chapter two, my favorite quote: The gospel of Jesus Christ, should be both simple and profound. Simple in its beauty, but profound in the life change it should bring. Roman 1:16
Chapter five title is, Set Aside Worry: The one great crime on the part of the disciple, according to Jesus Christ, is worry. Whenever we begin to calculate without God, we commit sin. What would our lives look like if we refuse to worry? (convicting question, don't you think?) Phil. 4:6
Chapter six brings resilience to the fore front: Resilience is an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortunes or change. ( notice that word I put in red...it takes practice and practice and more practice to do anything with ease. Let me add a quote: The truth is, God puts us through more than we can bear. He does. Why? Because, after we journey through those hard places, we learn resilience and resilience brings the ability to joyfully live in the moment despite our circumstances, a holy paradox, Mary Demuth writes. Jeremiah 29:11

I know the proper way to end a post is to ask a question, but I think I will let this one stand alone without a question and see what come forth.
