Value one another
Ephesians 4:16

What value do you place on things? What is your most valuable possession? Why is this so? Some things are priceless to us – what makes them so special?
You have five minutes to speak about yourself to someone who doesn’t know you – what do you say about yourself? What does this say about what you consider important and how much you value yourself? 


Read Ephesians 4:16
Society tends to put value on criteria like wealth, status, influence, etc., but the Bible values something else far above all these – connection to God. How does your relationship with God affect how you value yourself?

What do these say about the value God places on you? 
How does this impact the way you see and feel about yourself?
What God given gifts and abilities do you see in yourself?

Read 1 Corinthians 12:4-7. 
What is your role in the Kingdom of God? Where do you fit in as a “ligament” (see Eph. 4:16)?

Read John 15:1-17. Consider verse 8. Who receives the glory when you display fruit in your life?
When you reflect on your value (as explored in the questions above), how much are you worth: to God; to yourself; and to others?

Encourage one Another
1 Thessalonians 5:11-13

“Everyone needs encouragement! Life is tough, and whether it is to take on a challenge

or to deal with a setback or just to get up to face the day, we all can use some encouragement.

But real encouragement often means more than a pat on the back and the words “hang in there,

it will get better.” People today need practical help and real encouragement that can help them to face problems that just won’t go away. The scriptures give us many practical
ways to encourage one another that are based on truth and really work.
