Performance Trap – The Search – Week 2

Performance Trap: I must meet certain standards to feel good about ourselves. Lie: Self-worth = performance + others opinions.

Symptoms:

  • Perfectionism
  • Avoiding risk
  • Anger and resentment
  • Pride
  • Anxiety and fear
  • Depression
  • Dishonesty
  • Self-medication (could be anything)
  • identity wrapped up in success

The central issue in our walk with God is not sin management. The central issue in our walk with God is understanding our identity in Christ. When we get that, everything else works out.
