Lesson 8: The Wisdom of a Humble Heart
Our culture is self-centered and proud. The emphasis on individual rights has created the climate for this phenomenon, and the recognition of individual accomplishments has fueled it. Unfortunately, even Christians are not immune to its effects, but a consideration of Solomon’s words about pride and humility can help us gain a correct perspective of our worth.
Questions for LifeGroup Leaders:
Note(s) to LifeGroup Leaders:
- Please read most of the commentary to your LifeGroup. You may summarize it if necessary, but there is nothing wrong with reading it. If you are a husband and wife team leading, perhaps take turns reading to the group. There is valuable review of the Scripture passages and application for effective discussion. Use your LifeGroup members to read Scripture.
- The “Making It Personal” section is not designed for group discussion. These are questions that you might use to conclude before prayer. They are questions that prompt personal conviction and application. Please use them at your discretion to help your group.
