Thoughts of John

What is on my mind.

Twenty Days of Prayer: Day 8

Scripture

Colossians 3:9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices

Questions for Reflection:

Do you ever lie? Do you exaggerate to make yourself look better? Are you guilty of any form of cheating? Do you mislead people or institutions? Are you careful to follow through with promises, vows and commitments you make to God and others? Is your word your bond or are you somewhat unreliable? Do you frequently fall short in things you said you would do?

Scripture

1 Corinthians 10:10 nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Questions for Reflection:

Do you often gripe and complain about situations in your life? Do you fail to give thanks in all things and at all times? Are you filled with an attitude of gratefulness and praise or grumbling and complaining? Do you make excuses for your grumbling by saying, “I have good reason to complain”? Are you always looking on the dark side of things? Do you trust God for supernatural joy or do you give in to murmuring and complaining?

Scripture

Ephesians 4.31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with malice.

Questions for Reflection:

Are you guilty of critical, angry speech? Do you argue and fight with others? Do you tend to be irritable and cranky? Are you quick to raise your voice? Does your speech reflect an underlying anger and impatience with those around you? Do you speak unkindly to those in your family? Are you guilty of any form of gossip or slander of others? Do you speak evil of people behind their back? Immediately confess and forsake these serious sins of speech.
