Find a quiet place and work through these questions yourself, and/or work through them with a friend, family member, or your life group.
- Can you think of examples of when generosity and/or compassion are hard for you and don’t come very naturally?
- Have you ever been more concerned with your location or occupation than you were with who you were becoming? Based on how you spend your time/energy/money, who are you becoming now?
- Look at Philippians 2:5-6. Paul essentially says, “Don’t just do to others as you would have them do to you. Do to others what Jesus has done for you.” What’s one way that this mentality could change how you approach your current relationships?
- Dream for a minute. What it would it look like for you and your faith if you “let your light shine before others”? What are some actions or steps you’d like to take to make your faith “shine like stars”?”
