THIS WEEK'S FOCUS
We grow through our conversations - with God, with ourselves, and with others.
Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ.
(Ephesians 4:15 NLT)
1. Can you think of a humorous example of you or someone else, sticking their “foot in their mouth?”
2. Are you quick to resolve conflict or offense with others? If not, what causes you to delay?
3. Have you experienced healing through sharing your struggles with others? If so, would you be willing to share an example?
4. How would you speak to someone with truth and love about the following scenarios –
Your teenage son just told you he can’t stand being around you, and to leave him alone.
Your spouse forgot your anniversary for the 2nd time in 3 years.
Your boss scolded you unjustly in front of your co-workers.
A close friend shared a confidential secret that you had shared, with someone you would have never told.
Your adult son / daughter has walked away from the Lord. They still love you, but want nothing to do with God.
