My littlest baby girl.

A teacher recently mentioned they no longer encourage single file walking. There are too many to follow, and the children can’t see where they’re going. This reflects our world—a place of following without real connection, where we can’t see our path because there are too many people to follow.

Should Christians use the Enneagram

Can Christians Benefit from using the Enneagram?

As Christians, we constantly seek ways to deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. The Enneagram model offers a unique perspective on personality and behavioral patterns. It has gained immense popularity in recent years, but the question that often arises is whether Christians can use the Enneagram or not.

The answer is a resounding yes! The Enneagram can help Christians grow in self-awareness, empathy, and compassion. It can help us identify unhealthy patterns of behavior and thought that hinder our spiritual growth. By discovering our Enneagram type, we can gain a deeper understanding of our strengths, weaknesses, and underlying motivations.

However, it is essential to approach the Enneagram within the context of our faith. We must seek guidance from God and use the Enneagram as a tool for self-reflection and growth rather than as a means to define ourselves or others. As Christians, we believe that our identity is rooted in Christ, and the Enneagram can help us better understand and live out this identity.

In conclusion, the Enneagram can be a valuable tool for Christians seeking to deepen their self-awareness and spiritual growth. As with any tool, it is crucial to approach it with caution and openness to God’s guidance. By using the Enneagram within the context of our faith, we can become more Christ-like in our thoughts, actions, and motivations.
