Reflection/Discussion Questions:
  1. We often think we know what God is doing in our lives. But often fail to see His larger agenda for us. In other words, how do we know that what’s happening in our lives is really what’s going on? Might God have a larger purpose, an expanded agenda for us rather than the one we sometimes settle for?  
  2. Too often we see ourselves as we are, and not as God sees us. How can we better understand how God sees us, rather than focusing only on  how we often see ourselves?
  3. When God calls us to action, do we need to fully understand His purpose before we respond in obedience? In other words, what is the link between responding in obedience to His leading as compared with fully understanding His purposes?
