“Sin destroys our self-esteem because it blocks intimacy with our Father—Christ was sinless and, therefore, confident (had God-worth)! I John 4:18- “There is no fear in Love, but perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love.” Pastor Don Conner
“Dominion refers to those things for which I am responsible, both in the physical and non-physical realms, including property, time, space, rights, relationships, and privileges. Dominion relates to stewardship responsibilities. Dominion is the positive side of ownership, while selfishness is the negative side…Threats to your dominion produce real feelings. Those feelings are not selfish sensations but dominion violations. One reason we suspect God made man sensitive to his dominion would be to help all of us better appreciate and serve others. That conclusion is consistent with the otherness of Biblical ethics. The dominion sensor is not so much a reminder of our possessions as it is a reminder to respect the possessions of others. Pass that truth on to your children.” Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo, in their Growing Kids God’s Way (2008 leadership) workbook, ppgs 114 & 115 (italics added).
