    The Blame Game

    The Blame Game

    Whether we know it or not, success or failure is often our primary basis for evaluating our self-worth. If success, worthy. If failure, unworthy. And so consciously or unconsciously, we live a life of trying to avoid failure. Which leads us to playing the blame game. Whenever someone fails, we point an accusing finger. When we fail, we search for a reason, a culprit, or a scapegoat. Why? Because we don’t understand God’s unconditional love and grace. We believe the lie that when we fail, we are unworthy of love and deserved to be punished. Whether the accusations are focused on ourselves or others, because we believe that with failure comes condemnation and with condemnation comes due punishment.

    The Approval Addict

    The Approval Addict

    We spend so much of our time building relationships, striving to please people and win their approval and respect. And yet, after all of our sincere, conscientious efforts, it takes only one unappreciative word from someone to ruin our sense of self-worth. Why is that? It is because we are living according to the lie that I must be approved by certain others to feel good about myself. But basing our self-worth on what we believe others think of us will cause us to become addicted to their approval. And this is dangerous. Our acceptance and worth are not dependent on others’ acceptance of us, even if they are fellow followers of Jesus! Whether they accept us or not, we are still deeply loved, completely forgiven, fully pleasing, totally accepted, and complete in Christ. And He alone is the final authority on our worth and acceptance.

    My Name Is Shame

    My Name Is Shame

    From the moment we are born, we find ourselves searching to satisfy some inner and unexplained yearning; to feel good about ourselves, to know who we are, our true identify, and ultimately, our worth. But if we base our worth on past failures, dissatisfaction with personal appearance, or bad habits, we often develop a false belief; I am what I am, I cannot change. I am hopeless. I am a shameful person. When we have a distorted view of ourselves, we will never fully experience the peace and freedom that only comes from God.

    Kingdom First

    Kingdom First

    We are an emotional people. But when we let our emotions take over, they can cloud our judgment. Politics can raise emotions leading many to become frustrated and angry. And when we leave our emotions unchecked, we can easily become divisive. Why does this happen? Is it because we are focused on what we want; for our own kingdom? Or is it because we are fearful of something and do not trust God for his outcome? As we approach this election, ask yourself this question: Is what you want driven by human emotion or informed with God’s truth and aligned with what God wants?

    Not So With You

    Not So With You

    Our political views are shaped by a number of variables: our backgrounds, education, personal experiences, and the families we came from to name a few. It’s easy to feel like our view is the right one, but the person beside you is more precious to God than your political view.
