St. Matthew’s Spiritual Survey 2017*
Here is a series of statements. As you read them through carefully and prayerfully, please write a number in the space next to each statement.
Write a '5' if the statement describes you extremely well;
a '4' = if it describes you fairly well;
a '3' = if it describes you sometimes, but not consistently;
a '2' = if it describes you only rarely; and
a '1' = if it doesn't describe you at all.
Please resist the temptation to answer the way you think you should, or how you would like to be. Instead answer the way you feel right now. You're not trying to get a specific score. Your goal is to understand how God has wired you and how you can become the person God made you.
