~One of the faults of humans is to use other people. What does that mean? Have you ever felt used? How did it make you feel?  When you pray and only ask for things, how do you think it makes God feel? 

~What kind of relationship do you have with a friend or relative who does many things for you, yet they do not feel used?  Are there other things you do together? Are there other things you say to each other? How does this help you understand the type of relationship you should have with God?

~We were created in God’s image (Genesis 1:26). That means we have the same emotions God has.  Do you ever do things that discourage God? How will you change that?
