We Are Purposeful But Not Programmed

July 30, 2014

“We are purposeful in our choices; we are not programmed by past or present influences in any manner that relieves us of responsibility for the directions we choose. We move through life toward chosen goals that we think are reasonable and justified. Therefore, behavior can better be understood by looking at what it achieves than by studying its background.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Understanding Who You Are, Page 10

Questions for Reflection:
• In what areas of your life does bondage to sin feel programmed by your past or present circumstances?
• What self-centered goals might be fueling patterns of sin in your life?
• Share with God any area of repentance and of holy desire that rises in your heart as you ponder the goals you have been pursuing.
