Time For A Self-Assessment

Leson Objective:  To understand the need for continual self assessment to determine where we are in our spiritual walk.   Memory Verse  Psalms 119:59 Definition: assessment or evaluation of oneself or one's actions and attitudes, in particular, of one's performance at a job or learning task considered in relation to an objective standard. Comparing to an objective standard-  The Bible Looking for our faults or shortcomings How often should we do this evaluation? Consistently—informally Following disagreements After major accomplishments or disappointments Formal evaluation- A writer suggests the following: Daily--- 15 minutes Weekly- 30 minutes Monthly -  1 Hour Quarterly- 2 hours Yearly- 1 day Why do we need to perform self evaluation? To stop looking at others and look at ourselves Matthew 7: 3-5 Luke 6:37 Lamentations 3:40 Haggai 1: 5-7 How do we perform the evaluation and with what tools The tools is the Bible John 13:34 and Ephesians 5:2 1 Corinthians Chapter 13 Verses 1-3..  Motive for why we do what we do? Verse 4-  patient, kind and not proud Verse 5 – does not dishonor others and not self seeking Verse 6- Does not delight in evil Verse 7 – Always trust and hopes and perseveres Verse 11- Reach maturity Verse 12- self examination will not be enough Verse 13- The greatest of these is love So What--- The object is to remove all barriers that will keep us from having a closer relationship with God. For those areas where you need improvement find someone to hold you accountable.
