How to Use This Guide:

Each week, start with the section that is dated for that week. You’ll start with an icebreaker and a few portions of Scripture to read and discuss. After you’ve completed that section, use the “Series Questions for Discussion” as an opportunity to dive deeper and apply each week’s teaching. Make sure you remember to finish your time together with prayer.

Series Questions for Discussion:

  • Prior to this message, what was your understanding or application of this week’s key saying?
  • How have you observed this expression to be used in a potentially hurtful or manipulative manner?
  • How have you been challenged by the insight presented by Pastor Josh this past week?
  • How can one’s understanding of this phrase influence how they view themselves? Others? and God?
  • What can you do to put into practice the insights you have learned?

  • Consider these statements:
