~Do you feel at a dead end about something right now? Deep down are you wallowing in your haze of hopelessness? In eternity, this will be just a small thing. How can this help you have patience with what is happening?

~Think of some trait you have that you feel would make people treat you like a leper if they knew about it. Revelation 21:8 puts cowards, murderers, immoral and liars all in the same category. If he forgives cowards and liars, what can he do about your hidden leper-like sin?

~If you had a friend who never talked to you unless they wanted something, how would you feel about that person? What is the conversation like when you are with a true friend? God feels the same way about you when the only time you pray is to ask for something. What will you add to your prayers to reflect a true friendship with God?
