February Words

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” Romans 12:2

Conform: too often I have accepted what the world has already been and let it shape me

Any longer:  habits that have been practiced for too long

Pattern of this world: the model of this world is not the model I want to seek

Be transformed by the renewing of your mind: put off the old self, put on the new self

  1. character– who I am, not what I can do
  2. courage-emotional maturity
  3. consideration– emotional maturity
  4. forgiveness-swallow pride, express my sorrow, apologize
  5. primary greatness– where my heart is, where my real motives are ~the ultimate desire of my life
  6. service– little things are the big things
  7. sacrifice-trust, risk being hurt
  8. synergy– “Win-Win” abundance mentality
  9. inside-out approach- “know thyself” “control thyself” “give thyself”
  10. responsibility– humble and complete acknowledgment of it
  11. self-awareness– examine the lens I see the world through
  12. conscience– wisdom of the heart
  13. independent will– act based on principles
  14. creative imagination– create beyond present reality

(above: some things I would like to put on)

Book: Primary Greatness by Stephen R. Covey: This year we had a book exchange during our family Christmas. I received this book, and it is where a lot of these intentions are coming from.
