1. Take a look at your notes. Was there anything you heard for the first time or something that caught your attention, challenged, or confused you?
2. Tell us about someone who has been a friend to you during your hardships. What did you appreciate the most? What is one important trait that you can demonstrate to a friend going through difficulties?
3. Think about living as light in your community, neighborhood, and workplace. List three ways you can let your light shine in the darkness you encounter. Be specific and practical.
4. Opportunity lives next door to disappointment. How do you sense when a door is clearly shut to you—especially when shining your light to a spiritual outsider or skeptic? How do you spot a new opportunity that might be next door (geographically, relationally, or otherwise)?
5. God is always in control and always has a plan. How does knowing that reality impact what you do (and how you think) as you reach out in love and truth to your neighbors?
