We can act in ways that flaws our character
Life is full of choices
The choices we make today will determine the reality of tomorrow.
Because of bad choices we have made, we have to experience consequences.
Saying, “I am sorry”, is not enough to change our consequences.
We have been given the right equipment to make right choices.
To often we choose to play the victim instead of the victor.
If you can pray for the person you don’t like it is hard to hate them.
We need to practice empathy. We need live in empathy and not sympathy.
Empathy looks like, being willing to weep with people.
We are not always called to have the “right answers” for people.
Don’t think you know it all.
Insecure people insulate their own insecurity with insult.
Do good, when other people are doing evil.
We become enslaved to others when we allow them to stay in our minds.
Don’t let people own you in your own mind.
We have to choose freedom we have to choose to walk it out.
Jesus has freed us. Jesus has given us freedom, but you have to make the choice to step out of the prison.
We don’t have to feed our reality with negative choices.
We need to live today, what we hope tomorrow will be.
1. How does it transform our minds when we are willing to bless those who persecute us?
2. What does empathy look like? What is the difference between empathy and sympathy?
3. How can our interactions with others change, if we are willing to sit down and have face-to-face conversation instead of using social media to make our points?
4. What does it mean to you, to “live in harmony with each other”?
5. What can we do to find freedom from people owning us in our own minds?
6. Why is it so hard for us to make good choices that will determine our realities for tomorrow?
