  1. Honesty time: for you, what would you naturally want to find your significance (sense of self-worth) in?
    How does that compare with knowing Christ, according to Paul (Phil 3:8)?

  2. According to Phil 3:15 (and previous the 3 verses Phil 3:11-14), what is "mature thinking" regarding pursuing Christ-likeness? What specifically would be "immature thinking"?

  3. You can't make yourself grow, but you can do things to put yourself in a position to maximize your growth. What are the things you can do to help your growth?
