Questions:

Discuss people/things you rely on for safety, security, and significance.  Now discuss how this can be dangerous. 

Respond: God wants us to always keep our eyes on him; to recognize that he is the source of all of our blessings; to trust that he is with us in our storms; to know that he is the one that gives our lives ultimate meaning and purpose. 

Read 2 Chronicles 14-16. What stands out to you in Asa’s kingship? What caused Asa to take his eyes off God?

How can successes and failures alike cause us to take our eyes off God?
