Taking it further to help you THRIVE 

1.Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged, or confused you?

2.What is something you have done recently that you believe may have been in opposition to God? What was the outcome?

3.In what area(s) do you struggle with being teachable? Why?

4.“Everyone should have someone in their life that (in some fashion) they are mentoring.” Would you agree or disagree with this statement? Why?

5.Over the past 6 months, would you say you have grown in Christ, regressed, or remained the same? Explain.

6.Think about the ‘life you live.’ When others see you, how are they seeing Christ? (This is not meant to be a pat-on-the-back, nor a time to feel guilty; just honest reflection.)
