COMMUNITY MEDITATION

KNOW

  • What does the Bible say about who installs true leaders? Read Daniel 2:20-23. Does this change the way you look at leaders of nations? Leaders of the church? If so, how?
  • What qualities to do you look for in someone you want to follow? Are they influenced by God’s qualifications? The Worlds? Something Else

FEEL

  • How do the promises of God to sustain His people make you feel toward your leaders? How does the promise of God to judge evil-doers make you feel toward your leaders?
  • Do you feel that you may be seeking positions of power where God is asking you to serve?

LIVE

  • How does our pride influence the way we live and serve God? Others?
  • Where are some areas that you need to humble yourself and serve instead of trying to lead?
  • What areas of your life do you need to stop looking for an external threat and realize there is an internal threat?
