Inventory Prompts (tips on what to ask yourself)

CR suggests that you memorize Galatians 5:22–23, the “fruit of the Spirit”: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

Daily ask yourself any of these questions to prompt your writing, starting each question with the word “today”:

  • · How did I show love to others? Did I act in an unloving way toward anyone?
  • · Did others see in me the joy of having a personal relationship with the Lord? If not, why not?
  • · How was my serenity, my peace? Did anything happen that caused me to lose it? What was my part in it?
  • · Was I patient? What caused me to lose my patience? Do I owe anyone amends?
  • · Would anyone say that I was kind/good? In what ways did I act unkind?
  • · How was my faithfulness?  Did I keep my word with everyone?
  • · How was my gentleness and self-control? Did I lose my temper; speak a harsh or unkind word to someone?

 

Perform this self check. Ask yourself daily if you are
