I may choose to ignore anonymous comments. I consider this type of anonymity dishonest. Also, I don't post regularly. I post when I have something worth writing and something worth reading. I explain all this in: Don't Let Telling Tales Trip Up Your Truthfulness.

Christlike Attributes: What are they and do I have 'em?

Preach My Gospel is largely intended to be a missionary manual for full-time missionaries. Obviously it has other uses. I've found it to be marvelous in guiding my own personal scripture study. It is not the sort of book you just read. It is a work book that you need to work your way through. It is available in hard-copy from the Church's Online Store, PDFsectional PDF and MP3.

We are told:
In addition to being the standard guide for mission presidents, full-time missionaries, and ward missionaries, Preach My Gospel can also help local leaders and members study and teach key doctrines, prepare youth to share the gospel, and become better missionaries themselves.
I'm just finishing up Chapter 7 on Christlike Attributes. Page 126 is an Attribute Activity where all the attributes are listed and you can check off your own progress. It cautions, "Spiritual growth is a gradual process, and no one is perfect, so you should expect to rate yourself better on some items than on others."

This convenient little list can serve as a reminder and a goal chart for improving. Access it and see if you don't agree with me. If you ever wonder to yourself "What Would Jesus Do?" this list can help answer that query.
