Gloriously Enough

Application Questions

  1. What stood out to you most from today’s message? 
  2. What are the situations and reasons that you fear others (care about what they think)? What feelings does it produce in you? What actions does it make you take?  
  3. Why do we place so much value (weight/glory) on what other people think of us? 
  4. Read Psalm 34:1-10- how does this passage demonstrate God’s glory being enough for us? How can we apply it to our personal need for approval?  
  5. What is God specifically leading you to do in response to today’s message? Who can you share this with?
