[I am continuing to journal the study questions from Chapter 3 of John Ortberg's The Life You've Always Wanted. For some "look ahead" at the book, I have posted the chapter titles at the index link at the bottom.] Prayer Direction:
Many of your group members communicated that they are making a commitment to specific disciplines that will help them overcome barriers and grow in spiritual maturity. Pray for each of your group members to stay committed to these new disciplines. Pray for them to experience joy and encouragement as they begin this journey.
Living the Life:
The author writes about the reality that people don't just drift into a life of training. They must be committed.
The author says that if keeping the spiritual disciplines makes us less loving, rather than more loving, we would be better off not practicing them. Are there disciplines you need to stop because they are driving love out of your life?
All of these are more private spiritual questions for your personal reflection.
Please be free to share these personal reflections as you are moved. Particularly, if you are in need of the prayer in the "prayer direction", or wish to be supported by someone "Living the Life" - please say so in the comments.
