The truth about humans is that every one of us has spiritual blind spots.

 

Becoming self aware:

  1. Give others permission to speak into your life.
  2. Slow down.

    • It seems unreal that he would be so blind, but can you relate?
    • Discuss some of those ways with your group.
  2. Be sure to check out the “Notes” from the message.  Discuss them with your group.
    • Troy discussed the “How fast is your life?” page in our Freeway books.
    • Are you on the “Freeway,” but you’re going so fast-paced that you can’t enjoy the ride?
    • What steps can you take to slow down?
