Willard: the self-esteem trap

Sunday, March 15, 2015
    So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.
    —Ephesians 4:17-18 (NIV)
    The initial move toward Christlikeness cannot be toward self-esteem, because of the confusion about what self-esteem means, and because, realistically, I’m not okay and you’re not okay. We’re all in serious trouble.
    ... Dallas Willard (1935-2013), The Renovation of the Heart, Colorado Springs, Colo.: Navpress, 2002, p. 49 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 4:17- 18; John 3:18-19; Rom. 3:10-12; Gal. 3:10; Eph. 2:1-5; 1 John 3:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I am lost without Your salvation.
