Christian Bible Lesson 115: Control Stress

The medical community has provided significant information regarding preparing for stress.  Their suggestions include at least seven hours of sleep at night, exercising regularly, meditation, and staying socially connected.  However, living with stress while you are experiencing it is much more challenging. 

Christian Bible Lesson 101: Forgive others and you will be forgiven

It is important to forgive those who wronged you.  We all make mistakes and do things that affect other people.  Sometimes people are not aware of the pain they cause others until it is too late to change their behavior.  Other times they deliberately hurt people. 

Christian Bible Lesson 98: Do not focus on wealth

If gaining wealth is your primary objective, you may spend the majority of your time pursuing riches and miss the benefits of life.  We must be careful not to focus too much energy on working to earn money and miss opportunities to improve our lives by experiencing the companionship of other people.  This does not mean that you don’t work to support your family, it means that you have other priorities as well.

Christian Bible Lesson 97: Be Humble

The word “humble” appears eighty-one times in the Bible.  It is important to learn as early in life as possible that taking personal credit for your actions is not in your best interest.  As you can see in the Bible verses above, you do not need to take credit, pay attention to other people and you will be rewarded in so many other ways. 

Christian Bible Lesson 94: Spend Some Time in Isolation

It is important to spend some time alone to analyze your current state and your future path. Regardless of whether you feel depressed or are uplifted, you will benefit from spending some time alone thinking about your challenges and how you can improve your life. Prayers that cause you to think about your disappointments and your successes as well as your relationship with other people can be very powerful when you are isolated and focused on very specific topics

Christian Bible Lesson 90: Create Friends

These verses tell us that we need to think about how we want other people to treat us and apply that to our own behavior. If your focus is on how you treat your friends, you will benefit over time. When you do a favor for a friend for the purpose of a future benefit, your motive will eventually become apparent. Understand that friends are extremely valuable and you must consider that whenever you have the opportunity to support them.
