Reflection Questions: Do I strive for the world's idea of power? Or God's humble power? What is keeping me from living in the abundance of God's humble power?

Reflection Questions: For what purposes are we using the humble power God has given us?  For flourishing?  Or for creating idols?  Where are we seeking to be like God by playing the role of God--thinking, we shall not surely die?   As individuals?  And as a church?  What idols are currently stealing our power and life?  In humble power can we surrender them to Christ so that we might flourish?
