Question 1: In what ways do you see the value of becoming "little children" with our relationship to God? How do you see yourself being challenged to become more like a child?
Question 2: What in the last year has been a burden you have carried? How is Jesus calling you to find rest in Him with that burden?
Question 3: How might the modern church be creating burdens that those trying to find Jesus would find hard to bare? How could the people of our church point people to rest in Jesus?
