Hello dear sisters! I hope you have been enjoying week 2 of our study. The authors shared with us that “reverent in behavior isn’t just your actions. It refers to your entire attitude and conduct in all respects and on all occasions. It’s your “state” or “condition.” It’s your approach or style. It includes what you do and don’t do, what you say and don’t say, your countenance, attitude, manner, and entire demeanor. It includes your thoughts and emotions. It’s how you react to your husband and kids, or to your boss, or that meddling relative. It’s the outward expression of your inner character. Reverence is an attitude of the heart.”
Here are some discussion questions. You can share your thoughts and comments here, write them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you.
- Would those who know you identify you as a “God-fearer”? Why or why not?
- Can yo think of a recent instance in which your conduct was not “temple-appropriate”? How do you think greater reverence for God might have made a difference?
- Does our culture uphold reverence as a desirable trait for women? How does it’s view of reverence differ from that promoted in Scripture?
- What do you think it means to be honored by God?
On page 51 of our homework we were asked to confess any ways our speech or behavior has failed to honor the sacrifice of Christ and ask the Lord to help us esteem and honor those things that are of great worth in His eyes. I would like to encourage you to do that!
We have a group of women meeting on Monday evening to do this very same study. Click here to watch our Monday night group discussing week 2.
In His Love,
