Heart Healthy?

Five lifestyle changes to keep your heart healthy.
1. Enemy #1...
Enemy #1 - guilt
Personal Reflection / Growth Group Discussion
1. From your own experiences, how does unresolved guilt typically affect a person?
2. In terms of guilt, how would you assess your life?
3. Does involving at least one other in the act of confession raise the bar too high? Is there value to "out in the open" confession? Why or why not?
4. In your own life, what step do you need to take to more fully experience God's or another's forgiveness?
2. Enemy #2...
Enemy #2 - anger
Personal Reflection / Growth Group Discussion
1. Think back to some of your experiences of anger. Can you identify what it was on those occasions that you wanted, but failed to get - thereby triggering anger?
2. Do you see a connection between anger and hurt? If so, what it it? If not, why not?
3. How does unresolved anger typically affect a person?
4. In terms of anger, how would you assess your own life?
5. What are some of the most meaningful ways God has shown his forgiveness?
6. In what ways can you more fully extend forgiveness to others and be freed from anger?
3. Enemy #3...
Enemy #3 - greed
Personal Reflection / Growth Group Discussion
1. How does greed usually affect a person?
2. In terms of greed, how would you assess your own life? In what ways have you recognized your own greed?
3. How is greed fueled by fear?
4. How would you answer the question - why do I have so much?
5. What changes can you make to more fully demonstrate generosity and be freed from greed?
