Fresh perceptions for stale thinking

Sometimes it’s helpful to re-point our point of view.

To be less than happy, but not unhappy enough to take corrective action is to be stuck in emotional mediocracy.

Good intentions are no excuse for bad actions. Intention matters. Why do you do, say, and think what you do?

To improve your friend retention, make it your intention, to share your views with kindness.

Our brain is tangible and physical, but our consciousness isn’t. We can’t prove it exists, but when we’re awake we’re aware of it.

Arguing with people whose intention is to prove you wrong creates many unnecessary, negative emotions.

For me God is like consciousness. I can’t scientifically prove He exists, but when I’m awake, I’m aware of Him.

To camouflage your intentions is to engage in deception.

Biblical inclusion: “There is none righteous;” “All have sinned;” “All we like sheep have gone astray.”

To begrudge someone’s blessings is to belittle your own blessings.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
