Chapter 28 - Week 4 Thursday Posting, "Resisting Happiness"

(Please review the chapter summary and respond to the discussion question in the Comments Box below)

Chapter 28 – The Light is On

“We all have a great need for healing.  We all need to be liberated from our self-centered-ness.”  (p. 170) Selfishness is the path to unhappiness.

“Being gentle with your self consists of realizing your faults, failings, and weaknesses, and dealing with them appropriately.  God doesn’t want us to beat ourselves up.  He wants us to press on and try again.” (p. 176) Confession allows us to cast aside all these things and brings what’s important to the forefront of our life.

Discussion question: How often do you go to confession?  How do you feel after confession?
