Community Meditation

  • What are you ambitious about?
  • What are your motives in pursuing that goal?  Are they self-centered or God-centered?
  • List out some areas where God has given you some unique skills.  What are some of the ways that you can use those for His Glory?  Are there any areas where you can use those skills at Jacob’s Well?
  • What are some of the dreams you have?  Are they God-sized or You-sized?
  • Have you submitted them to God?
