The 268 challenge is based on Isaiah 26:8 – Yes, in the way of Your judgments, O Lord, we have waited for You; The desire of our soul is for Your name and for the remembrance of You. The “desire” of our soul is for your name. We long for Him, to remember Him and all that He has promised.
Here’s how we do it.
Read the selected passage.
Pick out a word that stands out to you and think about its meaning.
Later in the day, read the passage again and think about it.
Define your word. What does the word that you picked out mean and how does it pertain to this passage. (don’t use Wikipedia)
Again, come back to this a third time in your day, typically after dinner.
Read the passage.
Think about your definition of that same word.
Think, What does it mean for me?
Ask, “How does it apply to my life right now?” “How can I practice this right now?”=
He is some of my personal progress with the challenge.
