FINDING GLORY Wednesday

Discussion last week was about how loving each other reveals who God is. This week, we turn our attention to what can happen when we share our stories and our lives.

If you are just reading "FINDING GLORY Wednesdays" for the first time, we hope you will join the conversation which is based on Finding Glory in the Thorns resources. We hope you’ll share your ideas and perspectives whether you have been a past reader or not.

Today’s scripture and discussion questions are:

"No one has ever seen God; but if we love each other, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us." 1 JOHN 4:12-16

How can sharing your pain — talking about it, asking for help, giving help, etc. — be ways of expressing godly love?

In what ways might God be leading you or your family to ask for some help? In what ways might your seemingly selfish request actually result in positive things for someone else?
