Review this week's message.
By staying grounded in Scripture and God’s truth you can have an impact for generations to come.
“We are only as strong on the outside for our kids as we allow God to be on the inside.” – Jessica Cornelius
Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
- What’s a funny childhood memory you have?
- What’s your favorite saying you’ve heard from your mom or grandmother?
- What’s your favorite meal your mom or a mom in your life would make?
- Why do you think God gave us moms?
Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
- What qualities of a mother should we all consider applying to our own lives?
- Why is it so common to worry about something that probably won’t happen? Why does God remind us again and again to not worry?
- What does unconditional love look like? How did Jesus model it?
- How do you model a relationship with Christ to others?
Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
- How will you allow God to make you stronger on the inside?
- What life lessons do you wish to pass on to the next generation?
- What Scripture do you need to start claiming in your life?
- What wisdom have you personally gained from having mentors in your life?
Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.
Dear Jesus, thank you for gifting us with moms, not just ours, but all the moms in our lives. Help us to honor, respect, and appreciate them for the sacrifices they’ve made for us. In your name we pray, Amen.
Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
- Write out list of worries with today’s date on it, pray to God over this list and give those worries over to Him. Use this list as a reminder that you’ve given your worries over to the Lord the next time you feel that worry welling up within you.
- Scripture models that everyone should have a mentor, and then they should also be mentoring someone else. Even if you are not a parent, you can still impact the next generation. If you don’t already, find someone you trust to mentor you spiritually, then find someone that you feel God’s placed on your heart to mentor.
- Scripture tells us to take every thought and make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). When you find yourself thinking negatively, pause, and then think three things that are God-honoring instead. Make this a regular habit to train yourself to think about things that glorify God.
March on, my soul; be strong! Judges 5:21
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. 2 Thessalonians 3:16
Take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5
God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street. Deuteronomy 6:5-7 MSG
