Wrapping Up the Temperaments

What a great 3-week workshop on the Temperaments! For the past few lessons, Joanne guided us through the strengths of each "type" AND the challenges presented by our natural tendencies. On September 24, she wrapped up the series with a great study on what our Temperaments look like when they are led by the work of the Holy Spirit in us.

In addition, each Temperament was given a helpful verse from Proverbs to claim as we allow the Spirit to control and work in us! Here are the verses again, for your convenience:

The Sanguine - Proverbs 17:22 A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

The Choleric - Proverbs 11:14 For lack of guidance a nation falls,
but many advisers make victory sure.

The Melancholy - Proverbs 27:12 The prudent see danger and take refuge,
but the simple keep going and suffer for it.

The Phlegmatic - Proverbs 16:4 The LORD works out everything for his own ends—
even the wicked for a day of disaster.
