Christians are capable of gathering knowledge of the Bible and theology without changing. I find that troublesome.

Some Christians become less loving, kind, generous, or joyful the more they are steeped in head knowledge about God.

Surely, we are invited into an amazing relationship with God, who knows us, and wants to be known by us.  We may come to humbly acknowledge that we are capable of continually ‘tripping over our own shoelaces’ and wondering why we falter.

Life-mapping and tools like the Enneagram can help us see the awesomeness of how God created us, along with the ways in which we trip ourselves up.

Self knowledge is far from ‘navel gazing,’ as some have called it. Knowledge of one’s self and one’s own story is a path toward spiritual growth when God is invited into the journey.

As John Calvin says it well:
“There is no deep knowing of God without a deep knowing of self, and no deep knowing of self without a deep knowing of God.”

 

 

If you have already benefited from knowing your Enneagram type and you are ready to learn more about how the tool can help you grow spiritually, join us for a one day live workshop in South Barrington, IL focusing on the harmony triads.
