Discussion Prompt: Virtues

Respond to the following after you have watched the videos for this session: 

Consider these six virtues: wisdom/knowledge, courage, humanity, justice, temperance, and transcendence.

Share about a time when someone has displayed that virtue in their behavior or attitude towards you.

  • What was the outcome of the situation?
  • How might it have gone differently if the person had not displayed that virtue?
  • How have you been able to carry forward this approach in your interactions with others? How does the guidance of the Holy Spirit relate to this commitment?

Provide scriptural and factual support for your contributions to this discussion by including at least one relevant verse and at least one reference to text (along with peer-reviewed articles or other academic sources as necessary). Make sure to cite your entire reference in-text and include the APA references at the end of your initial post.

Also, in your response posts, indicate what insights you have gained from your classmates posts that changed and/or reinforced your beliefs. Explain where you agree or disagree with your classmates and define why.
