If you were not there on Sunday night you can download 3-30-09 "Cure for the Common Comparison". Here are some questions that will hopefully keep the conversations going from our look at Luke 9:46-48.
1.) Have you ever been in a situation where you were strongly on one end of a competition or comparison? What is the story? How did your "win" or "loss" affect you?
2.) Have you ever seen or been a part of a good thing that was ruined by competition or comparison?
3.) In what ways have you seen this poisonous way of looking at the world infects a faith community? (maybe specifically surrounding the areas of unity, focus, false criteria that we discussed)
4.) How does it affect the way we look at the world and our faith when Jesus so closely aligns himself with the "children" (those who have nothing to offer) of this world?
5.) In what ways have you experienced hospitality as a means of ridding ourselves of the spirit of competition and comparison?
6.) How can we as followers of Christ practically make steps to weed out the competition and comparison that we have within ourselves?
