My Personal Worldview A belief in something is what defines your entire outlook on life and the world around you. Phillips, et. al., describe a worldview as, “A world view is the framework of our most basic beliefs that shapes our view of and for the world and is the basis of our decisions and actions” (2008, pg. 8). Everybody has a different “story” in life, therefore we all have a different worldview. What do I believe to be true? Why do I believe it to be true? How does this apply to my day to day life?

This applies to my daily life in many different ways. Being saved by the blood of Jesus, my daily life is impacted. I am called to love God first and others second. I am also called to walk humbly with God. “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you?

I need to be open to looking closer at why they believe what they do and try to understand them better. With all the evil that is happening in our world today, I hold strong to my faith and keep the Bible close when doubts come my way. There are so many temptations out there on social media, TV, and movies deriving from Satan. It’s important as Christians that we hold onto our convictions, lest we be separated from them. It is with strong conviction and faith that we can force the immoral provokers away from our lives indefinitely. In the midst of life’s struggles and challenges, our biblical worldview helps to stabilize life, serving as an anchor to God’s faithfulness and
