Help Your Men Examine Themselves With Completion Statements

Help your men think more deeply about their lives. Second Corinthians 13:5 says, "Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?" Socrates said, "The unexamined life is not worth living."

It helps to have tools. Below are some completion statements. Print them for your men. Give them 15—20 minutes to write their answers (you too). Then ask each man to share with the group, "What surprised you most about this exercise and why?" Close by asking each man to write down any action steps he wants to take. You could go even deeper by asking the men to hold each other accountable for the changes they want to make.

Here are the completion statements. Hopefully, Jesus will figure prominently into your men’s answers. You may wish to add to the list:

  • I am happiest when…
  • My core values are…
  • My highest priorities are…
  • I do my best work…
  • A good day is…
  • My goal is…
  • My ongoing struggle is…

Yours for changed lives,
