A psychologist named Carol Dweck coined the terms “fixed mindset” and “growth mindset” in 2006. Having a “fixed mindset” means we think things like “This is just how I am," “I’ve never been good at this,” or “I’m not cut out for this.” A growth mindset says, “I don’t know how to do this yet, but I can learn.” Having a growth mindset is tied to impr…

The Bible describes guilt as an overwhelmingly heavy burden. God wants to relieve us of this burden, but we often don’t let him. Instead, we try to find relief from things that can’t provide it.

Humility is the core of Jesus's relationship with God, and it's what he ta…
