Prayer Direction

Ask God to reveal how you pursue personal worth through the things of this world. Ask him to show you how to pursue self-worth according to his expectations.

“Live It!” Challenge

Based on your prayer time, select one area of your life that you will surrender to God. Map out the steps you will take this week to begin pursuing God’s will for this area of your life.

Small Group Discussion

  1. In what ways does the world assess the value of a person?

  2. Share how you pursue success or acceptance through the world’s lens and not God’s.

  3. Discuss how you ever felt pressured to conform to societal expectations that conflict with your values as a follower of Jesus.

  4. Read: Genesis 1:26-27. What does being created in God’s image mean to you personally?

  5. Share how you have your identity and value in God's love, even when faced with conflicting messages from the world.

  6. Read: Psalm 139:14. Do you see yourself as wonderfully made? If so, how does that impact your life? If not, what is getting in the way?

  7. Read: Ephesians 2:10. What are some possible “Good works” God has planned for you?
