Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

December 22, 2011 (self-esteem)


“The wisdom of this world deceptively teaches
that believing in the inherent goodness
of one’s 'self' is foundational to a fulfilled life.
However, this erroneous viewpoint
overlooks the devastating results
of Adam and Eve’s failure to obey God.
Scripture teaches that a fulfilled life
is not dependent of having a 'good self-image'
or a 'higher self-esteem.'
Instead, fulfillment in living
depends on your relationship to God
and a biblical response to the problem of 'self.'”
- Biblical Counseling Foundation
