    out of the book "pupose" -driven life


    I have already pointed out that the truth will set us free but often makes us miserable first.:puke2: the fear of what we might discover if we honesly faced out character defects keeps us living in prison of denial.Only God is allowed to shine the light of his truth on our faults ,failures,and hang-ups can we begin to work on them.This is why you cannot grow without a humble ,teachable attitude.

    This is very true. If you want to know about people, learn your likes and dislikes; your interests and what bores you. To improve oneself, you can not hide from one's self.

    Thanks for sharing, Precious.

    Sister LibertyLady aka AuroraFlower ... :love:

    You are so right ... :toast:

    So often we want to "fix" other people.

    When in reality ... it is our own individual selves ... that needs the fix'n.

    True. Arrogance stunts growth, because often people feel they've no need to grow, especially in the right direction. When it comes to having faith, this is an absolute must! There is no walking on the righteous road without humility and recognizing ones faults in great repentance, for this is your showing of faith to the one who died for our sins, and He gives us salvation in return for believing in what He has done, in His resurrection from the dead and all of His Holy and faithful works and teachings. Trusting in our KING the Most High is what makes our faith shine, and grants us His mercy and forgiveness of sins, so that we might taste redemption as it's given.
