Questions for Reflection and Discussion:

  1. What are you putting before God? What is really important to you?
  2. Are you open to being taught?
  3. What are some of your filters when you receive feedback?

Exercise:

If you really believe you have a valid excuse for not attending prayer on a Sunday morning, please work through all the excuses you can think of in your small group discussions; and practice listening to feedback from other members who may challenge your thinking. Experience your reaction to the feedback. Feel what you feel when you hear the feedback. Others can practice giving biblical feedback. Then listen to the feedback through the eyes of THE teacher, and then choose to return to Jesus, repent and change your behavior.
