phlegmatic path to holiness

Phlegmatics are the quintessential “nice” people.

The phlegmatic is prone to sloth and does not like to work, but once he takes on a task, he perseveres.

He doesn’t demand much from life and doesn’t have a lot of internal motivation.

A phlegmatic soul must cultivate an aspiration to do better, especially when it comes to piety.

He must focus on fulfilling his duties of life.

Today, we take a look at the phlegmatic section of Rev. Conrad Hock’s the Four Temperaments, as we study the phlegmatic’s path to holiness.


In this Episode

  • A phlegmatic must focus on his duties of life.
