I plead the Fourth......

Ken Sande suggests asking two close friends the following questions to encourage your continued growth in Christ:

Please describe three character qualities, behaviors, or attitudes in me that have disappointed, annoyed, or offended you or others, or seemed to undermine my witness for Christ. Give specific examples, if possible.

What things have you seen me make idols out of? (An idol is any desire—even for good things—that I have elevated to a demand, become excessively preoccupied with, looked to for security, had to have in order to be content, or allowed to control me.)

If there were just one change God would bring about in me in the next six months, what would you pray it would be?

Psalm 141:5
Let a righteous man strike me—it is a kindness; let him rebuke me—it is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it.

Proverbs 27:6
Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.
