Humility Cures Worldliness
Week # 35

OBJECTIVE: To discuss the cure for worldly problems.

Feasting on the Word:
James 4:7-10

Family Discussion:
Last week we looked at chasing selfish, worldly living. This week we will look
at how to cure the problems that come with worldly living.
What does God tell us we need to do to cure worldly living? (vs. 7-8)
What does it mean to submit to God? (I John 2:17, Matthew 26:39,42)
Who does James tell us to resist? (vs. 7)
What will happen if we resist the devil and submit to God? (vs. 7)
What does James tell us we need to purify? (vs. 8)
Why is it important to keep our hearts clean?
(Proverbs 4:23, Matthew 15:16-20)
What should we do in the sight of the Lord? (vs. 10)
What does it mean to “humble ourselves”?
What will God do if we “humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord”? (vs. 10)
Can you truly say you have submitted your life to God’s will so that He can lift
you up and provide you strength? (Philippians 4:13, Romans 8:31)

Challenge:
(You may want to sing the song, “Humble Yourselves.”) Should we submit our
will to God? Make a list of ways in which we submit our will to God’s. Make a
list of others that we need to submit our will to. Pray about having a spirit of
humility.

Family Project: Take time to work on your family project. (Refer to list.)
