THIS WEEK’S MINDSET INVENTORY: Which mindsets are we leaning toward?

Our Church has a … Knowledge Mindset – Discipleship comes from knowledge of God’s Word and Jesus’ teaching. – OR – Application Mindset – Discipleship comes from application of God’s Word and Jesus’ teaching.

I have a … Reasonable Mindset – I make most decisions (and actions) based on what seems reasonable all the way around and to my best advantage. – OR – God’s Wisdom Mindset – I strive to defer to God’s wisdom in all things.
