Need A Jump-Start? Try Forgiveness.

Posted on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 in Emotional, Relational, Social, Spiritual, Values

Need a jump-start for your character?

Try forgiveness.

Forgive Yourself and Forgive Others.

There are three common possibilities after conflict occurs:
– Conflict escalates
– Conflict goes underground
– Conflict is resolved constructively

So often when we screw up we respond one of three ways:
– Defend
– Deflect or Deny
– Deal with it

Fortunately, our perspective does not limit God’s perspective.

A Self-Esteem Civil War – When I Feel “Blind, Deaf & Dumb”

American Idol is here and is all the rage.

As I checked my email my wife and my mom chatted on the phone about the latest news. What did you think of gospel singing Jacob Lusk?  How about country crooner Scotty McCreery?  Did rockin’ James Durbin really break out a  Judas Priest song?

Frankly, I only care about American Idol because my wife cares; I stopped caring a few weeks ago.

Actually I never cared so much as I sat in wonder.
