Im a mystery to myself, for I want to do what is right, but end up doing what my moral instincts condemn. Romans 7:15 TPT

 

I do live in the world. But I dont fight my battles the way the people of the world do. 4The weapons I fight with are not the weapons the world uses. In fact, it is just the opposite. My weapons have the power of God to destroy the camps of the enemy. 5I destroy every claim and every reason that keeps people from knowing God. I keep every thought under control in order to make it obey Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3–5 NIRV

How would you describe how you talk to yourself and others? Are you more of a coach or more of a critic?

 

What are some ways you could coach yourself and others toward Christlikeness? What changes would you need to make to the words you use?
