1. Share a fear you had growing up. It could be anywhere from very irrational to very rational. Did your parents try somehow to abate your fears?
2. Do you feel comfortable sharing a very real fear of yours currently?
3. How do you explain the concept of "the fear of the Lord?" How is it different than the kinds of fears we've been discussing?
4. How do you think the "two way abiding" love casts out fear?
5. Can you share a way that you "punish" yourself and how that is tied to your fears?
