4. Are you happy with the way God created you—with the physical, emotional, mental, and relational traits he gave you? With the sex he gave you (whether masculine or feminine)? With the spiritual gifts he has given you? In what ways is it right to be happy or pleased with our own personalities, physical characteristics, abilities, positions, etc.? In what ways is it wrong to be pleased or happy about these things? Will we ever be fully "blessed" or happy? When will that be and why?
5. Think about the qualities that you admire in other people, both Christians and nonChristians. Which of these are right to admire and which are not? How can you decide? How can we come to delight more frequently and more fully in God himself?
