Show Notes

In this episode, Paul talks about the struggles we can get into if we regularly belittle others, or if we are cynical people.  Negativity is part of both of these struggles.  And being positive is definitely better for our relationships.

Belittling people, cynical people

Life Group Discussion Questions:

  1. Everyone tell at least One thing good (positive) about your wife (or family member). One good thing about Wyoming.  One good thing about our present federal government.
  2. Is it easier for you to think and talk about negative, or positive things? Why?  What areas of life are more negative?  More positive?
  3. Read Psalm 1. Those who belittle others, and those who are cynical(mockers) find themselves in verse 1.  What comes to those who are cynical and belittling?  What blessings are promised throughout the Psalm to those who resist cynicism and belittling (among other sins)?  How does meditating on God and his Word change us?
  4. Tell about a time when you were belittled or a time when you belittled someone else. How did it affect you?  The other person?  How did it affect the relationship?
  5. Read Ephesians 4:29 – 5:5 The heart of this passage is in 5:1 “Imitate God” or “Follow God’s example.”  As you read the rest of these verses, what are some of the many ways Paul talks about our communication?  What blessings follow imitating God?  What if we don’t?
  6. What would it look like if you shared a positive comment with everyone you encountered for the next 3 days? With whom would you struggle to do that?  How might it change a rough relationship?
