1. Icebreaker: If you were going build a monument or a building for people to remember you by, what would you build?
2. What insight, principle, or observation from Sunday’s sermon/message did you find to be most helpful, eye opening, or troubling?
3. Read Genesis 11:1-9. It is the story of the Tower of Babel and when God scrambled the language? What does this story teach us about the importance of communication?
4. What does the Tower of Babel teach us regarding humanity’s tendency to arrange our lives where we don’t have to depend on God? How do you personally arrange your life so that it is safe, where you won’t need to depend upon God?
5. Pastor Paul identified how human pride is the root sin (like in the Fall in Genesis 3). What role did pride play in what the people were trying to pull off when they were building the Tower?
6. Discuss and reflect on this statement by A.W. Tozer: “The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven't yet come to the end of themselves. They're still trying to give orders, and interfering with God's work within them."
7. Pastor Paul quoted C.S. Lewis: “The essential vice, the utmost evil, is pride.” In James 4:6 and 1 Peter 5:5, we are reminded, God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Why does God oppose proud people? How does pride hinder our relationship with God? Why does God want us to be dependent on him?
8. God seems to be saying in James 4:6 and 1 Peter 5:5 that the antidote for pride is humility. It has been said that humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less. How could you practically practice thinking of yourself less each day this week?
9. How can our group pray for you this week?
