Another Chance (August 22-23)

Another Chance

Introduction: Romans 12:2; 2 Peter 1:3-9

When we look back on a failed relationship. A job we could of have had…how do we make sure that next time isn’t like last time.

Review it:

Stuff Phil said:

“I didn’t see that coming…odds are that someone we know did see it coming”

“If they saw it coming how come they did not tell you? Maybe they tried, but our confirmation bias blinded us.”

“You and I are addicted to being right all the time.”

“When we hear something that is contrary to what we believe; we choose to discount it.”

“Each of us has come to a place where we have decided we can not make it on our own.”



Open it:

Have you ever felt blind-sided by life circumstances?

Tell us about a time when you didn’t see something coming and others did.

Explore it:

Do you have someone in your life whom will point out your blind spots?

Are you addicted to being right? Do you think our society is addicted to being right?

Get it:

How do you respond to information that is contrary to what you think?

Why do you believe that our society is addicted to being right and fall into the trap of confirmation bias?

Have you ever used scripture to confirm your wrong beliefs?

Apply it:

Do you have a plan not to fall into old patters?
