If you are struggling with things like pride, anger, unforgiveness, selfishness, lust ... Dr. Gary Smalley encourages us all to take the Four Day Belief Challenge! In areas where we shouldn't let our heart and mind wander, taking those thoughts captive and surrendering them to God. It starts by memorizing these four commands of Christ through these 4 verses (Dr. Smalley says to think upon these things 7-14 times a day and see the difference it makes in your life) :
1) Matthew 5:3 - (Listen Here) Blessed are the poor in spirit. Instead of being boastful and arrogant (pride), be humble.
2) Mark 12:30 - (Listen Here) Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength
3) Mark 12:31 - (Listen Here) Loving your neighbor as yourself. Serving others, instead of using others for our own gain and pleasure.
4) Matthew 5:9,10- (Listen Here) Trials are not bad. Thank God for the pain.
