“When Life Gives You Lemons…” – Living Beyond Yourself

Life Gives You Lemons.jpg

Scripture(s)

Philippians 1:27-28; Philippians 4:8-9 

Reflection Questions

1.   What comes to mind when you think about living beyond yourself?

2.   Read Philippians 1:27.  Paul suggests a high standard of living when he says, “Conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.”  What does he mean by this? 

3.  Do you know anyone who lives two standards: they act one way with some and another way when with others? Why might they do this?

4. Read Philippians 4:8-9.  How might we know if we have learned and received something from God?
