The Me I Want to Be Quotes by John Ortberg
The Biblical Art of Self Care
The Bible and Self Development
The popularity of self-improvement, or self-help, books throughout the history of publishing is rather amazing. Since self is the fundamental focus of self-improvement, we need to give some serious thought to what it is. The belief in inherent goodness is involved in all psychological counseling—and not as an option; it is foundational. The reason is obvious. If a person is not inherently good but has a fundamental defect in his nature that affects to some degree every aspect of his life, there is nothing a psychotherapist can do to alter the defect and its ultimate consequences. There are more than different psychotherapies that have been conjured up to do just that.
What does the Bible say about? But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge,. Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments.
