10 Ancient Christian Virtues

If we want to be Christlike, we need to have Christian virtues that are flowing out of our life. We have looked at beliefd snd practices; now we will be looking at virtues.

The Christian beliefs deal with what we need to know. The Christian practices deal with what we need to do. The final area of consideration is Christian virtues, or what we need to be - the ultimate expression of Christlikeness. (pg. 79)

Here are the 10 virtues:

1. Joy
2. Peace
3. Faithfullness
4. Self-Control
5. Love
6. Patience
7. Goodness
8. Gentleness
9. Humility
10. Hope

It would be absolutely incredible if we as a family could live these out and it would be more amazing if we had a group of families whom wmbraced these with us and we had these as our goal for our community lifestyle.

We would not only have a different relationship with God and with each other but we would be making an impact on everyone's lives that we come in contact with on a daily basis.
