We're Living in a Material World...
Most everyone we know has probably heard of Beth Moore. Some have seen her speak or used one of her Bible Studies. But, no matter your experience with her, you most likely have heard, "Beth Moore is just great. She's incredible." Well, she's not. (That's called an attention getter for my non-English major friends)
That's right. I said it. Beth Moore isn't all that. But, when she allows God to work through her and presents what she has learned, studied and prayed about, you better watch out! Thanks to my dear husband's "coaxing", I decided to take the plunge into the Daniel bible study at our church. Boy, am I glad I did! What a blessing it has been. I was afraid doing my daily homework would be such a burden, but I have loved every minute of it.
So, I wanted to share one point in Week Three that just knocked me off my high horse! Basically, so I don't commit any copyright fraud, Beth Moore makes the point that: Focusing on one's own inferiority (or feelings of inferiority) is just the same as thinking a lot of yourself. Meaning, either way, you are still focusing on yourself! I have never thought of it that way. So, whether you think a lot of yourself, or very little, it is still a form of self-absorption. Let that sink in for a while.
And I'm only on Week Three!
