1 Corinthians 4:b-c (What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?)
II. Sinners Worship Creation
III. Saints Honor God
1 Corinthians 6:20
1 Corinthians 10:31
IV. Saints Give Thanks
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Small Group Questions:
1.Do you see the truths of these verses in your own life before you were a Christian? Do you see left over fragments of this attitude in your life now?
2.How does the knowledge about truth-suppression help you to speak with nonbelievers about the Christian faith?
3.What specific ways have you honored (glorified/praised) God recently even though you were tempted to do otherwise?
4.What specific ways have you found yourself being thankful when your circumstances could have easily left you bitter?
