  1. Do we want to live safe, self-centred lives? Or do we want to live lives driven by God’s purpose? 
  2. Read Acts 7:54 – 8:8. Think and discuss about Stephen’s life
  3. Read the following Scriptures. What do they teach us about God’s plans to move us out of our comfort zones? ( Genesis 46:3-4, Genesis 50:24-25, Exodus 1:6-12, Exodus 3:7-8)

  5. Read Genesis 50:20. How does Joseph’s life encourage you in the midst of your discomfort?
