Begin your journey into the book of Nehemiah with Pastor Chuck Swindoll as he looks to this leader’s example. Explore the qualities that made Nehemiah a man of character and apply his example to your own life!
Greed is a desire for more. More power, more pleasure, more money, more stuff. But the more greed in your life the more it robs you of peace, joy, and contentment.
If we live life expecting others to conform to our belief system we will become frustrated and disillusioned, especially if that person is our spouse.
Pride stinks! The problem is, the proud person is the only one who doesn’t smell it. You can put pride into perspective by recognizing you’re reliant on God for every breath you take.
Everything we have is a gift from God and once you learn to appreciate what you’ve been given, giving back is a natural response. Generosity increases contentment and instead of striving for more, you enjoy what you have.
If Jesus promised an abundant, rich and satisfying life, how could He also promise many trials and sorrows? Aren’t those opposites? Why is the Christian life abundantly difficult at times?
Pastor Chuck Swindoll wraps up this series on grace by concluding that, while God loves unity, he doesn’t demand uniformity. Understand how you can extend grace to others even amid differences.
