We have organized the Guide with a specific order in mind. All of Jesus’ teachings should be practiced together, and almost all of them require daily practice (as opposed to one-time events). However, we have found it helpful to start with just a few at a time before incorporating more into our daily practice. Based on our own experience of trial and error, we have placed the steps of becoming a disciple of Jesus in the order in which they are best added to our daily practice of his teachings.
That being said, there really is no right or wrong way to begin this journey of discipleship. So if you want to peek ahead at certain teachings/practices which you are most interested in, that’s perfectly fine. But do keep in mind that there are at least a few teachings of Jesus which Jesus himself placed above the others, either because they are more important or because they are essential requirements (i.e. minimum standards) to becoming a disciple in the first place.
