Here are some notes for our small groups to respond and apply...
Read Proverbs Chapter 27 v 5-6
What was the big idea drawn out from Sunday?
Read through the following verses:
What picture of friendship do you have from these verses?
In what ways in Jesus our ultimate friend?
Why do you think God wants us to pursue human friendships?
(As opposed to only relating to people who you simply serve.)
These questions may want to be asked in smaller groups as it is quite sensitive.
As a Christian, who do you want to look good in your life? (Who do you want to be glorified?)
What impact does this have on your ability to receive correction/lay down ministries/etc?
Why are wounds from a friend faithful?
How will you cultivate genuine friendships and invite people to correct you?
Pray for genuine friendship and humility!
