Discussion Questions
  1. What comes to your mind when you think about God? Why does our view of God matter? Pastor Joe listed some attributes of God, spend some time reflecting on those.
  2. Define the fear of the Lord.
  3. What is God’s glory? What hinders us from giving God glory? Why do we want to keep the glory for ourselves? Give a personal example of how you seek your own glory over Gods.
  4. What is true humility? How do we attain that (or from whom do we attain it)? Is it something we can will ourselves?
  5. As a community group, what are some ways we can help one another in our struggles with pride, arrogance and humility?
