Ten Questions to Diagnose Your Spiritual Health

Ten Questions to Diagnose Your Spiritual Health, by Donald Whitney, is one of the books I am currently reading.  Whitney provides these questions with scriptural guidance for why they are important to our spiritual health, and then concludes each chapter with practical steps to help cultivate the particular area of spiritual health.  God willing, I will try to post a brief summary of each chapter on the blog, so that you can take your own spiritual checkup.  Better yet, click on the link and get your own copy!

Here are the ten questions:

  1. Do you thirst for God?
  2. Are you governed increasingly by God’s Word?
  3. Are you more loving?
  4. Are you more sensitive to God’s presence?
  5. Do you have a growing concern for the spiritual and temporal needs of others?
  6. Do you delight in the Bride of Christ?
  7. Are the Spiritual Disciplines increasingly important to you?
  8. Do you still grieve over sin?
  9. Are you a quick forgiver?
  10. Do you yearn for Heaven and to be with Jesus?

 Most of us have a tendency to take our health for granted, whether physically or spiritually.  So take some time for a spiritual checkup and evaluate your own life in light of Dr. Whitney’s questions.
