Discussion Questions:

  1. What’s a favorite holiday tradition of yours (song, poem, movie, food, etc.)? What is it about that tradition that is meaningful for you?
  2. Jon’s main point was that Christmas proves our immeasurable worth to God. Why do you think it is difficult for us to accept, remember, and/or enjoy our and others’ true worth to God?
  3. Read 1 John 4:7-12. What are some ways you could remind others of their worth this season?
  4. How can your group pray with you this week?
