You Are Not In Control

Bible Passages - Genesis 18; Hebrews 13:1-3; Colossians 1:15-20; Matthew 6:27
What stuck with you from Sunday’s teaching? Why?
What questions came to mind as you considered the Bible passage and message?
What are your thoughts on the following ideas?
“So what’s at stake? Well, your relationship with God and your relationship with others. A buffered self or a porous self. A self addicted to control who cannot connect to a greater life than your own, or a self that is open to experience reality as it comes to you, ready to learn, ready to accept and embrace the truth as it comes to you.” Have you seen the results of these two kinds of lives in people you know? What can we learn?
Joyfully tithing, fasting, not getting your way, and worshiping God are four practices that teach us to surrender control to God. Talk about experiences you have with these things and what you have learned.
Each week, you are invited to use the Reverb discussion guide with family, friends, or a small group for further Scripture readings, questions to ponder, or practices to engage.
