The following is an excerpt from a final class paper written by a current resident here at TTG:
This book has truly helped me realize my fear of man. I began reading this book with the mindset that I wouldn't get anything from it, but I was completely wrong. My fear of man is outrageous. I always blamed it on my personality and tried to use that as an excuse. I never saw my fear of man as the big problem it really was. I realize now how my fear of man has completely controlled me. It would cause me to lie, to say what I thought people wanted to hear, avoid embarrassing situations, and to be completely fake in front of people because I wanted them to like me. I also learned that comparing yourself to others is an excuse to sin. I tell myself, "Well they claim to be a Christian and have sex outside of marriage, so why can't I?" I know the answer to that question now and it's because I know it is wrong. I know it is disobedient to the Word of God. I now love, respect, and fear the Lord and that allows for me to know what is right and do what is right by God. Every human being struggles with the fear of man and can be called codependency, people pleasing, peer pressure and upholding your reputation. I've learned how to fear God more than man, how to grow in that area of obedience, and I'm able to know now when I am fearing man before God.
The following is a paper written by a current resident of TTG from one of the many classes being taught here at TTG:
God wants you to glorify Him in everything you do including how you use your money. If you work hard, which God gives you the strength to do, you should be a wise investor among many other things. It is a wise steward who invests to increase their finances little by little. Do not envy others that have more money than you, and if you are blessed with money, do not be stingy; be generous. Do not love money because loving it brings evil and you will never be satisfied. It is better to give than receive because freely giving will make you richer and that brings blessings upon your name from the Lord and He will always provide. Never be prideful or arrogant. God gave us work and the money He brings from it and we should enjoy the things that come of it. Be content with what the Lord brings into your life, whether it is a little or a lot of wealth. Never forget He gave and He can also take away. One should never expect to receive without giving of themselves whether it be financially, or with your time or your service. God gave to us and we are to live in His image of greatness.
