Every morning I ask myself a few questions in what attorney and church reconciliation guru Ken Sande calls the S.O.G. Plan.
- How am I feeling and acting? (practicing my own self-awareness)
- How are others around me feeling? How am I affecting them? (practicing being other-aware)
- What is God up to? (practicing being God-aware)
I am convinced that a critical element in letting Jesus being formed in me is daily Recognizing my emotions, Evaluating their source, Anticipating the consequences of following those emotions and then Directing them on a constructive course of action.
“Lord, how me to READ myself accurately!”
