What is the most expensive thing you have ever bought? If you had the money to buy any one thing, what would it be?  Why would you be willing to spend so much on something?

1 Peter 1:18-19

Think about it

What are some insecurities that you struggle with?  What does the Bible say about them?

Comparison is often the source of insecurity.  When we look at what others have, can do, or look like compared to us it can make us feel insecure. Are there any things in your life that are encouraging the trap of comparison? (social media, friends, etc.)

What can you do to escape these things and live in the truth of who God created you to be?

Moving Forward

Read Ephesians 2:10

God has created you for a purpose and has plans for you.  When we are living in God’s purpose for us, we can really know our true value.  What are some of the “good works” God has for you to do? (Oh, and don’t compare them to what God has for others to do.)
