Tim Keller's five questions to ask of a scripture

Some years ago, I heard Keller speak on his five questions to ask as you read the bible daily. I have these laminated as a book mark in my copy of  'For the love of God':

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 behaviour, 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 are you telling me this today?

In that case, this kind of question should not be taken from any show telecasted in specific country.

Below are listed a few popular pubs where one can chill
in Mumbai. The decline of the East side blues scene was disheartening, but, it
also gave rise to the need for a fresh start, which came in the form
of the next blues-only venue, Antone's, founded by the late Clifford Antone, during the summer of 1975.

DJ spins out on Saturday nights. Local country clubs are
offering trivia fun for as little as forty dollars per
couple. Ask your local club to run this for you.
