Summer Reading - Week 2
I hope you have been enjoying your book and finding a little time to escape. Last week I asked the question: What lies have you been believing? I find myself often trying to please others. It has been a work in progress. I certainly feel like I have been doing better, but I am constantly reminding myself of Galatians 1:10 which says, Am I now trying to win the approval of man or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.
I have the companion guide for the book Lies Women Believe and one question asks what is the primary sources of input you have coming into your life. Is it primarily T.V. and internet or friends and family. Remember, what you filter in gets spit back out.
So ponder these 2 thoughts and let me now what you think in the comments.
-What is a lie you have been believing?
-What is your primary source of input in your life?
1 Corinthians 10:13 - No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man, but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
Read Chapter 2 for next week.
