Summer of Love - Competing Allegiance 

Attachments are for eternal things; not for temporary things.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?

  • What’s your favorite thing in your home? Why?

  • If you won a million dollars, what would you do with it?

  • Have you ever had a time when you’ve been able to completely disconnect from your normal environment, activities, and attachments? What was it like?

Read: 1 John 2:15-17, 1 Corinthians 7:31, and Matthew 6:19-20.

  • Why is loving the world (things, not people) a sign of not having God’s love in you?

  • Why can being attached to things be a problem?

  • How would believing or not believing in eternity impact our view on attachments?

  • What would be your hardest thing to give up? Why?

  • Why do we struggle with being attached to things and not people?

  • Between denying yourself physical pleasure, such as fasting, or limiting what you look at, or stopping talking about your achievements and possessions, what can you work on this week?

Prayer: Pray for the proper priorities.
