Key Quote

“There are no discounts on greatness” – Pastor Bil Cornelius

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • What is your favorite sport?
  • Do you prefer college athletics or professional athletics?
  • Who is your favorite athlete? 

Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
  • How do you become resourceful?
  • Why is it hard to forget/let go of our mistakes?
  • What did Ps. Bil mean by “winning on the road”? Why is this important?

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
  • How are you managing your time? Is there anything you need to do differently with your time?
  • We are all on a team (EX. Work, family, church, school, etc.). Is your team on the same page? If not, how are you going to get them on the same page?
  • How do respond to mistakes knowing there’s always a fresh set of downs to make things right?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

Dear Jesus, thank You for all You do for me. I ask for your help to live more like You this week. In Your name I pray, amen.

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
  • Track your hours to see how you’re spending your time and make changes as needed.
  • If you’ve never trusted God with the tithe, test it for the next few weeks. See how God works in your life because of it!
  • Lead your team to unity by getting everyone on the same page with the same goal.
