Matthew 1:18-25; 1 John 4:18
1. Are you sometimes (or often) obsessed with what others think about you? What do you think is the difference between a healthy and unhealthy concern of other’s opinions?
2. Why do you think obsessing over what others think of us, rather than what God thinks of us, is such a problem for so many people?
3. Think of a time when you were criticized for your obedience to God—What did you learn from your experience?
4. What steps do you need to take to stop living for people and instead start living fully for God?
