Emotional Maturity

Course Description:

Emotional maturity has to do with the human challenge of taking responsibility for one's own feelings.  It pertains to one's ability to adjust emotionally and yet still be emotionally stable.  Since most professing Christians find it intolerable to acknowledge their own emotional immaturity, very few develop into emotionally honest and respectful Christian leaders.  What was Jesus like emotionally?  How did Jesus manage His emotions?  In this course students will be given opportunity to practice taking their true feelings to the Lord.  They will also be guided to see the wisdom of accepting constructive criticism, handling success with humility, and grieving life's disappointments while nurturing the hope we have in Christ.


Key Questions To Be Explored:

  • How honest am I with people at an emotional level?  Am I hiding my honest feelings?  How emotionally involved am I with God?

  • How well do I handle disappointment? 

  • What do I need to do in order to become more like Jesus at an emotional level?

  • What kind of inner healing do I need?

  • Who do I choose to get well with?
