Emotions Matter to God
Chris Kainu | October 1, 2017
Go deeper with the weekly teaching and use these conversation starters with your Life Group, family, friends, or roommates.
- If everyone is new in your group, take a moment and go around the circle, and share a bit about yourself. Include your topics like… born, raised, family, spiritual journey.
- Why are you digging into this topic of emotional health? What do you hope to get out of the 8-week study?
|Take an inventory of your own emotional maturity:||Not very true||Sometimes true||Mostly true||Very true|
|I often admit when I’m wrong, readily asking forgiveness from others (Matt. 5:23 – 24).||1||2||3||4|
|I am able to speak freely about my weaknesses, failures, and mistakes (2 Cor. 12:7 – 12).||1||2||3||4|
|Others would easily describe me as approachable, gentle, open, and transparent. (Gal. 5:22 – 23;|
1 Cor. 13:1 – 6).
|Those close to me would say that I am not easily offended or hurt (Matt. 5:39 – 42, 1 Cor. 13:5).||1||2||3||4|
|I am consistently open to hearing and applying constructive criticism and feedback that others might have for me (Prov. 10:17; 17:10; 25:12).||1||2||3||4|
|I am rarely judgmental or critical of others|
(Matt. 7:1 – 5).
|Others would say that I am slow to speak, quick to listen, and good at seeing things from their perspective (James 1:19 – 20).||1||2||3||4|
