Elements of Arrogance & Pride Week 9 Devotional/News

Elements of Arrogance & Pride Week 9 Devotional/News

Hello, Person of Purpose!

This week Our Given Purpose®, the ministry held exclusive mentoring sessions via the podcast. I want to thank each of you for your kind words, encouragement and listening. Wednesday’s Talking on Purpose with Torrie was challenging to record. I questioned whether to release it, but after prayer, the decision was made. The original video was almost 90 minutes, and in it, you see the inner turmoil. All of that paled in comparison to what the families of the murdered victims have experienced. With God, I was able to edit ‘You Posted That?!’ to spark conversations and perhaps bring light to those searching to understand what the Black community feels. I firmly believe love covers a multitude of sins, and the blood of Christ can unite His children. I do not wonder why evil happens or the lack of compassion from those who claim to know God. The adversary uses powerful weapons, and once he has ignited the flame of anger, arrogance, pride, and especially fear, destruction is the outcome. I am very proud of the pastors in my city who have preached messages of unity and peace peppered with applicable goals to reinforce God’s command of love. I am equally proud of those who have used their platforms to discuss concerns in a healthy way. Communication is the key. We must not be silent or inflict our insecurities and pride onto others. Please keep God the priority as we follow Him.   


Weekly Devotional

Elements of Arrogance & Pride Lesson 9 Week 9

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
