Discussion

  1. How does this perspective challenge or expand your experience of God’s love?
  2. Where does your experience of earthly fathers make it easier (or harder) to appreciate certain aspects of God’s love?
  3. How can we honor them, by building on the foundation they gave us, and even going beyond it?
  4. How might this perspective be misunderstood, misapplied, or otherwise harmful? What could help prevent that?
  5. What could we gain if we are willing to lose everything we previously used to define ourselves, as Christ did?
