Sunday to Monday | Broken Vessels

Nobody's perfect. On Sunday we talked about how God use our imperfections to carry the light and love of Jesus into the world....even when we might feel like things are falling apart. Here are some questions to reflect on this week:

  • Are you more attracted to people who are “perfect” or those whose “cracks” are visible? Why?
  • Paul writes in 2 Cor 4:7, “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our bodies.” How can our troubles and problems reveal Jesus to others? Do our troubles and problems reveal Jesus better than our successes and excellence?
  • How do we put the pieces back together when it feels like we’re falling apart?
  • Paul continues in 2 Cor 4:16, that we should not “lose heart” and focus on our inner self, worrying less about our outer troubles. What are one or two things you can do this week to renew your inner self?
