Week Two: Fear of Failure
Failure is not final, and it doesn’t define our lives. Let your “mess” be your message of God’s faithfulness.
Share a funny or embarrassing time when you failed at something while you were growing up.
The fear of failure can paralyze us and pressure us to be perfect. How have you experienced this in a specific area of your life?
What’s one common situation in which you’re quick to judge the failures of others?
What’s an area of your life in which you’re afraid of being seen as a failure by others?
How does Jesus’ response to the woman caught in adultery translate into your life? Does it change the way you see others? Does it change the way you see yourself?
Take a moment and consider any area(s) of your life where you feel like a failure. Jesus’ sacrifice means that our worst failures aren’t final. In fact, they can be used for incredible good.
What’s one step you can take this week to learn from failure and trust God to use it for good?
