Grow into an Emotionally Mature Adult
February 21, 2021
Well…it feels a little bit like Groundhog Day to me. Well, it feels a little bit like Groundhog Day to me. Well, it feels a little bit like Groundhog Day to me. …feels a little bit…bit like Groundhog Day, like Groundhog Day, Groundhog Day to me. Not the holiday; the movie. If you aren’t familiar with the 1993 comedy, it’s about a cynical TV weatherman, played by Bill Murray, who inexplicably finds himself reliving the same day – Groundhog Day – over and over again.
Last week we recorded a video about how humanity is pre-disposed to thinking that we are the center of the universe. And how violently people have responded when they come face to face with the fact that it’s not true! We are all inherently self-centered. It’s part of the sin nature we are born with. But over the past few weeks, we’ve been looking at what it means for us as followers of Jesus to grow toward greater emotional health – not just taking care of the everyday basics, but tending to the deeper issues within each of us. And then…one little, I mean, big ice storm, and we’re all focused on the basics of food, water, and warm shelter again!
So let’s try this one more time!
As a church family, we are committed to pursuing greater health, not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. And we continue in our study, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, this week. We’ll be taking a look at what means to be an emotional adult, unpacking the qualities that mark the lives of those who are emotionally and spiritually healthy. In our broken world, it matters, perhaps more than ever, that we as followers of Jesus, live out our faith in a way that demonstrates to those around us that there is real hope and healing in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
