    The Four Voices with Man in the Mirror Founder Patrick Morley

    The Four Voices with Man in the Mirror Founder Patrick Morley

    Patrick Morley, the author of The Four Voices, discusses how you can build your sense of self-worth, improve relationships, and grow by mastering your thoughts.
    The Four Voices
    You have four distinct voices competing for attention over your life. There's the voice of the world, the flesh, the devil, and the Holy Spirit. So how do you discern among the four to let the Holy Spirit lead you in a life worth living?
    Man in the Mirror Founder Patrick Morley has some answers. He says that the key is to learn to recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit and follow His leading. "The voice of the Spirit is always character building, edifying, encouraging, and motivating," Morley says. "It will never lead you into sin or compromise."
    So if you're wondering which voice to listen to, ask yourself: does this choice build my character, edify others, encourage me, or motivate me to do good? If the answer is yes, then it's probably the voice of the Holy Spirit. Follow His leading and you'll be on the path to a life worth living.
    We’ve talked about self-talk on Beyond the Rut, but never like this. What if the conversation in your head is more than just self-talk? Is the loudest voice the right voice to guide you?

    PATRICK MORLEY started a weekly Bible study in a bar in 1986—a study that now reaches thousands of men around the world every week at mimbiblestudy.com. That gave rise to the first of his 22 books, The Man in the Mirror, named one of the 100 most influential Christian books of the last 100 years.
    Patrick is the founder of Man in the Mirror, an international ministry impacting thousands of churches and millions of men. He graduated from the University of Central Florida and Reformed Theological Seminary.
