Relationship Goals – Part Three

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.

Philippians 2:3-5

Have you ever noticed how much time we spend thinking about the right person? “I hope he looks like this, I hope she dresses like that, I hope he has this kind of job, I hope she gets along with my mom, I hope, I hope, I hope…”

What if we spent that much time thinking about becoming the right person? Some people think when I meet the right person comes along then they will be loved and accepted no matter what.

What if he isn’t ok with the person you are right now? What if he or she isn’t ok with the decisions you’ve been making, and he’s not ok with the baggage you’ve been creating?

This week we will look at our own hearts and personal decision, and well ask the tough questions: Are you the kind of person that the person you are looking for is looking for?

Discussion Questions

  1. What is one the thing that really stood out from tonight’s talk?
  2. Why do we spend so much time thinking about “the right person?”
  3. Why can’t another person “complete you?”
  4. Are you the kind of person that the person you are looking for is looking for? Why or why not?
