Being Honest

January 27, 2013

"We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ..." ~ Ephesians 4:15 (NLT)

  1. What did I learn as a child--through both direct instruction and my observation of others-- about how to express my feelings? How has that shaped who and how I am today?
  2. In what contexts or relationships do I currently struggle the most to share my honest thoughts and feelings? What might be behind that struggle?
  3. A point in the message today was that the enemies of honest expression are pride and fear. Which of the two represents the biggest challenge for me now?
  4. What did I hear or experience today that was most impactful?  What, if anything, am I feeling inspired to do as a result?
