Pride an Unhealthy Craving for Wealth, the Podcast

Mentoring NOTES:
www.OurGivenPurpose.com
👋 Hello, Person of Purpose! 

You are actively participating in this 12-week session focused on arrogance and pride. Through these exclusive mentoring sessions, it is our hope that you are able to articulate your feelings in a productive way. Defining Present Moment Awareness is an example of the framework we use to help you achieve that goal.  Please share your thoughts in the comment section or on any of our social media pages. We want to hear from you! As we grow in emotional intelligence, we learn to clarify, organize, and prepare for the struggles we know lay ahead. Application is the key to pursuing a life of meaning!

TWEET THIS: 1 John 3:17 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?



🟥 Glossary:

Clarify -to make less confused.

Organize– arrange into a structured order

Prepare–  ready for use or consideration.

 

🟥 The Message:

Pride an Unhealthy Craving for Wealth. For this mentoring session, we are going to clarify, organize, and prepare with God what it means to arrogantly act with evil intentions and why it is in opposition to God. This session aims to teach applicable techniques to help you become more aware of how you use wealth as a weapon to bring others into submission.

Clarify.Organize.Prepare.

🟥Three key points:

  1. Read and study 1 Timothy 6
  2. Define what you are craving and how that is balanced with your godly ambitions.
  3. List the changes you can make, to tell the truth from a broader view. 

🟥 Journal Prompts:

  • Are words evil?
  • Do our thoughts bend toward morally or naturally evil?
  • Is it advancing the path of wrongdoing?

 

🟥 Clarify where your money goes.

  • Put others first think about who they come in contact with and cultivate another section of God’s garden.
  • Think about how your words affect others. While the truth is accurate, we can filter it through our biases and prejudices. Think before you speak.
  • A healthy degree of self-confidence is good. You were made in the image of God, and with Him, all things are possible. Pray fervently for direction to bring balance and order to your life. 

 

A selfless person goes beyond his concerns and empathizes with others. They are humble, have a broader view, genuinely listen to others, put themselves in others positions, say “we” instead of “I,” and celebrate success together and face the failure alone. They find pleasure in helping others to see happiness in their face.

 


🔺Season 4 began with an overview of 2 Corinthians 12 in Elements of Arrogance and Pride 101 the Podcast. Our focal scripture for the next 12 weeks is 2 Corinthians 12:20. The Apostle Paul helps us because he was obedient to the will of God. Let’s glean from his messages to the people of Corinth today. We do not want our Lord and Savior to return, finding us in the same state of rebellion or wickedness. To be transformed by the renewing of our minds means we must do our work. Clarifying, organizing, and preparing to do our assignment each day takes strategic planning with God. 

 

🔺Scriptures in this episode:

1 Timothy 6:3-10, Matthew 6:24, 1 John 3:17, Proverbs 13:11, Psalm 37:21

Elements of Arrogance & Pride Weekly Devotional and News Vol 4.

Hello, Person of Purpose!

This week we aired our third interview of season 4, D. Prest. ON! an interview with Derek Preston. Derek is a spoken word artist with a story of emotional struggle. He vulnerably shared his formative years’ experience. The lack of acceptance forced created an introspection that led to his purpose of leaving a legacy. He has the heart to help young boys navigate their uniqueness and embrace who they are. 

Thursday, Our Given Purpose® aired responses to the question: How has COVID19 impacted your life? Each person was able to send me their audio recording, and the collection of voices is what I presented. I love how awesome God is! He uses everything and everyone to lead us. While we may think we are charting our own course, His divine power is orchestrating everything for His good. 

~Torrie

On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Our Given Purpose, the Podcast we began the course of identifying our major emotional blocks.  We start with anger and work our way through arrogance, pride, and fear. Each of these extreme emotions breeds and molds our character.  

This year my prayer is that we will all pause before we speak or react. In doing so, we become doers of the Word and not just hearers of it. James 1:19-21 is the foundation of this first 12 -week session

Weekly News, Vol 30

Hello People of Purpose!

Season three of Our Given Purpose the Podcast and Talking on Purpose with Torrie, focuses on identifying the emotional pitfalls that keep us from walking in and working on our given purpose.

I hope you will tune in every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to study God’s Word, pray, reflect, and, most importantly, write! Journaling will provide a tangible way to keep track of our progress and thoughts throughout this year. Each Podcast and Internet show offers an opportunity to move beyond our limited human vision into a God-centered uninterrupted view.

On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Our Given Purpose, the Podcast began the  course of identifying our major emotional blocks.  We start with anger and work our way through arrogance, pride, and fear. Each of these extreme emotions breeds and molds our character.  

This year my prayer is that we will all pause before we speak or react. In doing so, we become doers of the Word and not just hearers of it. James 1:19-21 is the foundation of this first 12 -week session

While the format of Our Given Purpose, the Podcast will not change; however, the delivery of the information has. Writing out your thoughts will significantly impact what you take away from each audio or video. I encourage you to be open to the real possibility of making small changes each day. Our goal is not to cross an imaginary finish line by year-end but actively show up for ourselves in mind, body, and spirit.

My team and I are excited to see you plant seeds and produce good fruit throughout your faith journey. We want to inspire, motivate, and uplift you as you walk boldly and intentionally into purpose. Let us prepare to stand shoulder to shoulder, agreeing that we are not trying to fix one another; instead, we desire to bring out the best.
