Week 3—Feb 17-24

Group Discussion (40 minutes)

Here is an explanation of our use of the word “Flourishing” as opposed to “blessed” or “happy” ARTICLE HERE

  1. Our Daily Devotions help us “abide” with Jesus each day. Brainstorm some ideas to remain engaged with the devotions. You can read OR listen to the devotionals from now on. 
  2. The Way of Jesus is all about becoming people of love. Read 1 Corinthians 13:4–7 out loud 3 times.

4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

1 Corinthians 13:4–7 (NLT)
  1. What about 1 Corinthians 13’s definition love is hard for you?
  2. Easy is often a shortcut. The Way of Jesus requires effort. Where are you exerting effort right now?
  3. Write down the name of someone who needs your mercy. Pray for them each day. 
  4. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you become a person of love.
