👋 Hello, Person of Purpose!
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!
Clarify -to make me less confused.
Organize– arrange into a structured order
Prepare– ready for use or consideration.
Arrogant– having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one’s own importance or abilities.
Prideful– having an excessively high opinion of oneself
Lofty– elevated status or superior having an arrogant, overbearing manner
🟥 The Message:
The Toxic Thinking Your Pride Wants to Keep Hidden! Part 1. In this session, we identify how negative thoughts begin, second, we use scripture to uncover the lies in those thoughts, and finally, we strategize how we will practice the truth.
The design of these mentoring sessions is to introduce the idea and encourage exploration. I want you to be curious about the way you are thinking. The Bible verses and scriptural passages are examples of how you can use the Holy Bible to do this.
Action Step One: Identify How Negative Thoughts Begin! Using a simple exercise we learn how toxic thinking is fed. 2 Corinthians 10:5 Write down “take every thought captive to obey Christ” and describe what that means to you.
Action Step Two: Find the Lie! Make a conscious decision to hold your thoughts captive. This means you will not give your mind the freedom to run with its current course of filtering truth through your immediate fleeting feelings. Test your thoughts using Philippians 4:8
Action Step Three: Practice the Truth 2 Corinthians 12:20
What are the consequences of those thoughts, and how did we behave?
Did your thoughts lead to fighting, jealousy, anger, hostility, slander, gossip, inflated ego, or disorder?
How will Christ our Lord find you?
🔺Scriptures in this episode:
2 Corinthians 10:5, Philippians 4:8-9, 2 Corinthians 12:20, Genesis 1:26, Acts 9:4
