4. How did God remind you of His presence this week?
Note for Leaders: You don't have to do every question listed. Choose the best ones for your group!
- What is the difference between belonging and fitting in?
- Have you ever felt unworthy?
- What else did you take away from Pastor Michael's message on Sunday?
- What's the relationship between being loved and belonging?
- Read Genesis 1:26-31, Genesis 3:1-13 and Romans 5:6-11 - are we worthy of acceptance?
- Read Luke 15:11-24.
- How did the son's actions affect his status?
- Read Matthew 22:39. Do you think we must first love ourselves before we can love others?
