The Table

Wk of 7/9 Ch 3 & 4

Ch. 3 Ryan In Love
Being engaged is a way of doing life, a way of living and loving. It’s about going to extremes and expressing the bright hope that life offers us, a hope that makes us brave and expels darkness with light...I want to be engaged to life and with life.
By this definition are you engaged?
How can we become engaged/or increase our engaged-ness?

Ch. 4 The Reach
I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.

What was your first job? Was there any major lesson learned from your experience there?
“You’re nothing until you’ve been fired once or twice.”
Have you been fired? How did you come out the other side of that experience?

The thing I love about God is He intentionally guides people into failure. He made us so we are dependent on Him, our parents, and each other. The whole thing is designed so we try again and again until we finally get it right.
When have you failed?
Did you get up and try again? why/why not? What was the result?

Finding things and losing things is what the Bible is all about. God even seemed to encourage it. He talked about losing your job, or even your life, if you want to find it. He talked about losing your status to find real power.
What is your take on this, how does it apply to you?

How will you "Love Does" this week?
