Week 1: What are you producing?
Matthew 12:33-35 AMPC
33 Either make the tree sound (healthy and good), and its fruit sound (healthy and good), or make the tree rotten (diseased and bad), and its fruit rotten (diseased and bad); for the tree is known and recognized and judged by its fruit.
34 You offspring of vipers! How can you speak good things when you are evil (wicked)? For out of the fullness (the overflow, the [p]superabundance) of the heart the mouth speaks.
35 The good man from his inner good treasure [q]flings forth good things, and the evil man out of his inner evil storehouse [r]flings forth evil things.
Mark 8:22-25 NIV
22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”
24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”
25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.
How do you talk to yourself?
Matthew 12:36-17 AMPC
36 But I tell you, on the day of judgment men will have to give account for every [s]idle (inoperative, nonworking) word they speak.
37 For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced.
How do you view yourself?
A lot of our adult issues stem from our childhood traumas, troubles, and transitions.
What trauma did you face as a child?
What troubles did you have as a child?
What transitions were hard for you to push through as a child?
We can either allow our traumas, troubles, and transitions stress us and debilitate our character.
We can allow our traumas, troubles, and transitions strengthen us and declutter our character.
Your character needs to be decluttered because the more it is cluttered, the more you produce a life that is not in Quality.
Quality In Living
Psalm 1:3 AMPC
3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].
