The Teachable Spirit of Happy Goldilocks

Being happy in your spirit has to do with understanding what you need or what you lack before you can ever decide what makes you happy. The teachable spirit knows that experiencing hunger, tiredness, or discomfort is the prerequisite for determining what makes you happy. Consider Goldilocks for a moment. Finding the house in the forest occurred when she was hungry. Tasting the three bowls of porridge led to observing: one was too hot one was too cold one was just right Feeling tired led to seeking which chair would best accommodate her need. She thought that the first two chairs were too big and the third one was just right. Sitting in it; however, caused the chair to break, leading to more discomfort. Climbing the stairs in search of a better solution, she...

Sufficiency with the Teachable Spirit

Sufficiency with the Teachable Spirit

What is the definition of sufficiency? What is enough? How does the teachable spirit acquire this concept? Sufficiency is the quality of precisely enough, the adequate supply that meets our needs exactly where we are, neither too much nor two little. In her book, The Soul of Money, Lynne Twist describes sufficiency as the place hidden on the inverse side of the three toxic myths prevalent in our world today: There is not enough. More is better. That’s just the way that it is. Yeshua (Jesus) lived in sufficiency. Some say He was poor; others say that He was wealthy because He was the Son of God. The truth is, He always had exactly enough to do precisely what he needed to do at that moment; never more and never less. When the tax collectors were attempting...

Alone with the Teachable Spirit

How can you be happy alone? What does the teachable spirit need to do to create happiness when you are alone? These are very difficult questions to answer, especially if we are busy people that have families and care for children. My life is serene now compared to what it was in the days when family was the focus; however, the work I was doing in my family’s life at that time would have benefited from answering these two questions. The scripture says, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Do you see that loving yourself is the foundation for loving your neighbor? The care that you take in meeting your own needs will be the same care you take in meeting those closest to you. Yeshua (Jesus) told a story in reference to this concept: And behold, a lawyer stood up...

Joseph’s Parenting Style: Encouraging Growth

How can parenting continue while facing issues in your life that seem like giants? Does it seem as if you will be ineffective at parenting because of raging personal battles? Fighting giants while parenting requires concentration. Remember, you are encouraging growth in your child. I think what happens to us is that we are so discouraged with the giants we are trying to slay that we do not think we are doing very well in our parenting, either. Most of all, while fighting giants: stay true to you determine what is most important stick to your core beliefs Consider that while Joseph was going through all those circumstances in his life, he stayed true to himself, and stuck to his core beliefs. Observe what works with your child and with your parenting; be...
