In this video download of Session 1, "Recovering Contentment," you will learn three ways you can respond when you are tempted to compare yourself to someone else or envy something your friend has. (10 minutes)
We all love the benefits of technology and social media, but even with the incredible upsides, there can be unintended negative consequences. The more we compare ourselves with others, the less satisfied we are. The more filtered our lives become, the more challenging it is for us to be authentic. The more information we receive about the pain and crises in the world, the more difficult it is for us to care. In this five-session video-based study, New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel taps in to some of the most up-to-date studies on social media to help us understand how it affects our emotions, our relationships, our attitudes, and our beliefs. He encourages us to regain control over our lives by rediscovering the principles of real life with Jesus: contentment, intimacy, authenticity, compassion, and rest.
