Week 2 Honor: Additional Resources

Hello sisters! As we end week 2 of our study I would like to share a few additional resources for a deeper study. All these can be found on the True Woman 201 website at http://www.truewomanbooks.com.

Week 2 Honor: Discussion Questions

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.

  1. Would those who know you identify you as a “God-fearer”? Why or why not?
  2. 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?
  3. Does our culture uphold reverence as a desirable trait for women? How does it’s view of reverence differ from that promoted in Scripture?
  4. 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.

True Woman 201: Week 2 Honor

Hello sisters welcome to week 2, Honor, the second design element of biblical womanhood. We hope you’re enjoying the study so far! On page 39 the authors say, “A True Woman makes much of Christ…She is “reverent in behavior.” She’s deeply respectful of the sacrifice that Jesus made on her behalf – and her profound reverence evokes a personal response and commitment. Reverence for the Lord stirs a woman to dedicate herself to serving Christ. A reverent woman lives a God-centered life. She’s wholeheartedly devoted to the Lord. She seeks to honor Him in every attitude, thought and action.” Wow! I know that’s the kind of woman I desire to be. How about you?

As you work through week 2 be sure to check in here for additional posts. If you get behind that’s okay, the posts will always be available here.

In day one, Mind Your Manner, we learn that honor involves a deep, reverential fear of the Lord and an acknowledgment of His constant presence, “temple-appropriate”. In day two, Giving Precedence, we learn that reverence is acknowledging the Lord’s authority over us, with our hearts, thoughts, demeanor, attitude, and actions. In day three, Me-First Mistake, we learned that irreverence is failing to honor something of great worth, less of our opinion/desires and more of Christ’s opinion/desires. In day 4, No Sassy Girls and day 5, Growing Reverent, we learned why reverence is near the top of Paul’s list of important traits for older women and answered the questions, ‘Why is reverence a trait that’s specifically important for the female sex?’ and ‘Why is reverence particularly important for “older” women?’

Once you’ve completed the homework for this week click here to watch the True Woman Week 2: Honor video.

Come back on Wednesday for our Discussion Questions. You can share your thoughts and comments with us here, jot them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you. Please let us know how we can pray for you throughout the study. Have a great week!
