LIFE: Identity & Self-Esteem

2nd October 2009 by Jarrod Newton

Which Jesus have you met?

What's inside?

Week 1: Names and Labels. 'Sticks and Stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me' is a catchy saying, but far from the truth.

Week 2: Image. Everywhere we turn, we're bombarded with lies about beauty & happiness. It's time to find the truth.

Week 3: Embracing Weakness. When we hide all our mistakes and weaknesses, we give them power to control us. Being open brings us freedom.

Week 4: Acceptance. Where does bullying come from? And what's the solution?

Week 5: Worry. The product of low self-esteem is worry and anxiety. We take a look at what the Bible has to say about the topic.

Identity & Self-Esteem

This 5-week series dives into some of the major issues we all face. Who am I? Who am I meant to be? What do others think about me? Will anyone ever love me?

Unfortunately the world isn't much help. Magazines, TV, and shopping centres all deliberately play on our insecurities with the aim of turning a profit. It can be hard to see the value in yourself when everywhere you turn you're confronted with comparing yourself to an unrealistic ideal.

We hope this series will help you start the conversations that will help people lose the mask and start enjoying being the person they were created to be.
