Opening

In what area of your life do you find yourself striving most passionately for perfection?

Diving Deeper
  1. Do you find yourself more often demanding perfection from yourself or from others? Why do you think this is?
  2. Read James 2:10. How does this verse affect your view of perfectionism?
  3. 1 Peter 1:15 calls us to be holy just as Christ is holy. Do you think He’s calling us to perfectionism? Why or why not?
  4. How do we balance the expectations in 1 Peter 1:15 and Matthew 5:48 with the knowledge that all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23)?
  5. What’s the difference between striving for perfection versus expecting perfection?
  6. Because of sin, we’re going to fall short of God’s standard for us. How can we avoid feeling defeated when we do fail?
  7. Does the fact that Jesus died for your sins ever cause you to give up on striving for perfection? Why or why not?
  8. What does healthy perfectionism look like in your life?
