1. Deep, loving relationships are built upon mutual listening. To listen is to love; you can’t truly love unless you first listen. How might this perspective inform the way you engage people with differing viewpoints? What hinders your ability to listen well to others? 2. What might it look like for someone to express the fullness of grace and truth in the midst of a conversation regarding same-sex relationships?

- In a hyper-sexualized world what are the intentional steps I could take to protect my heart and mind from the draw of all forms of sexual immorality? - Have you been exposed to sexually alluring material or allowed your mind to entertain inappropriate thoughts about someone who is not your spouse this week?

1. Describe a time where you experienced some kind of breakthrough after a painful season. What role did community play (or did you wish they had played), and what does this teach you about how to be involved with others? 2. Consider the following quote: "The beauty of God's design is such that marriage was intended to show off Christ’s love and devotion to the Church, and singleness was intended to show off the Church’s love and devotion to Christ." How does this insight communicate mutual honour to both single and married people? 3. Who might God be asking you to love practically who are not within your current spheres of relationships? If God was inviting you to reach out to someone today, who would it be?

1. Consider how Jesus lived a life of continual, joyful submission to the Father. When was the last time you joyfully laid down your desires and preferences for the sake of someone else? What might a habit of this look like in your life? 2. Consider how Jesus used his power and position only for the purpose of serving others.

Reflect together on the following two quotes and the extent to which they describe your current experience and mindset in relationship. What could you do to be this kind of friend and, if applicable, this kind of spouse? Regarding Friendship: Maria Dinah: “…the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person – having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.” Regarding Marriage: Tim Keller: “Within the Christian vision for marriage, here’s what it means to fall in love. It is to look at another person and get a glimpse of the person God is creating, and to say, “I see who God is making you, and it excites me! I want to be part of that. I want to partner with you and God in the journey you are taking to His throne. And when we get there, I will look at your magnificence and say, ‘I always knew you could be like this. I got a glimpse of it on earth, but now look at you!’” “.…most people, when they are looking for a spouse, are looking for a finished statue when they should be looking for a wonderful block of marble. Not so you can create the kind of person you want, but rather because you can see the kind of person Jesus is making.”

1. Tim Keller writes: "Marriage used to be a public institution for the common good, and now it is a private arrangement for the satisfaction of the individual. Marriage used to be about 'us,' but now it is about 'me.'" What are the implications of this cultural shift? 2. Why is a healthy fear of the LORD foundational for a thriving marriage? (Choosing to Listen, Trust, Obey as though you are not the LORD of your own life.) 3. How has God used your marriage (or if you're not married, how has He used a challenging relationship) as a means to 're-shape' your heart? Are you currently yielding to this work of heart formation (if so, how)?
