Before the Session

  • Have the Bible Background Video ready to view.
  • Review today’s scripture text and the session activities to help better facilitate the discussion.
  • Encourage your group to listen to the Faithelement podcast ahead of the next session (Share the link via email or social media).


Start by playing the I Am video clip and asking questions like:

  • In the course of your everyday life, how often do you need to be reminded of your individual value and why?
  • Why do you think that, if someone could constantly remind people of their worth, those people would watch them on TV, buy their book, and send them cash on occasion?
  • In what ways can either positive or negative words be damaging to you?
  • Bearing in mind that some jokes are funny because there is an element of truth in them, what kind of power might their actually be in “crippling guilt?”
  • Where should we draw the line between being positive about ourselves in Christ and being aware of our shortcomings?
  • Mr. Osteen’s teaching aside, how might someone come to feel confident in God’s working and power in their lives?


Read Isaiah 43:16-21, then watch the Bible Background Video.
