- The “fear” of the Lord is a different meaning for fear than we normally use. It means to have love, respect, honor, awe for God. Growing up, was there anyone for whom you had this kind of respect/reverence?
- We all like to say we love and respect certain people in our lives, but ultimately, how much we love or respect someone is shown in our actions. If someone says they love and respect you, what actions would they need to show?
As a follow-up, if we say we love and respect God, how do you think that should be reflected in our actions and behaviors?
- So often we’ll ignore or delay following advice (especially from our parents) that ultimately was for our good, and we do the same with what God asks of us. What’s a lesson, advice, or command that took you a long time to begin to follow?
- In what area of your life are you withholding something from God?
What are you going to do about it?
Who do you need to tell, so they can help?
