August 2(Phil. 2:1-11)

  • What words or lines jump out to you in the text? Why?
  • How would you define humility?
  • Who is the humblest person that you know? What makes them so humble?
  • What would it mean or look like to value others above yourself?
  • Would always valuing others above yourself lead to you being walked all over in an unhealthy way? Why or why not?
  • Is it ever okay to put yourself first? Why or why not?
  • What do you make of Paul’s example of this way of living in Jesus’ live, and most importantly, in his death? What was the consequence of Jesus living in this way? (see verses 9-11)
  • What is the difference between trying to be the best version of ourselves versus using other people as inspiration and motivation to learn and grow in ways that may not be innate?
  • How would it impact your life if instead of being jealous of others who were better at certain things that you are, you celebrated them and asked to learn from them?
  • What would the world look like if we all operated in a way where we celebrated others and set out to learn from one another?
  • What is one person in your life that you have been jealous of? What would it look like to shift your attitude to celebrate and learn from that person instead?

Adam’s Devotional – July 30 – August 5, 2020

From Adam…

Hope you found the miss you M&Ms at your house. It’s true– we miss you. And we really do pray that even in the midst of this pandemic, “that your love would overflow with knowledge and full insight. . .” Yes, overflow, not just be filled to the top– but filled to overflowing.  How does a cup overflow? How does it get filled for that matter? You put it under the faucet, right? Then comes the most important part– you hold it there. You keep it still until you cup is full. When the psalmist wrote, “be still and know that I am God,” maybe it’s so we could be filled with knowledge and full insight. How much time are you slowing down, being still in God’s presence, and allowing yourself to be open to the Holy Spirit filling your life? Which have you done more of: complaining about what you can’t do during the pandemic or holding still in God’s presence? Which comes easier? What would it look like if you filled some of the space in your life with stillness to be filled to overflowing? Try it this week.  Every time your frustration, anger and sadness overflows about this pandemic, slow down, share those feelings to God, hold still, and breathe for one minute. Do that daily, and the Holy Spirit may surprise you with overflowing.  God’s up to something . . . be a part of it.

God’s up to something . . . be a part of it.
