Remember It

Contemplate these questions, then click on each question to see the answer.
1. Name two temptations that elders tend to face.
Temptation of power and control and temptation of popularity and self-promotion.
2. What do we see as the main reason men do not listen to their wives?
They are afraid that their wives will control them.
3. Provide a verse that teaches accountability as necessary for our joy to be full.
1 John 1:3-4

Discuss It

  1. Explain what you understand by "to not be vulnerable to sin, you must be vulnerable to your accountability partner.”
  2. Describe ways you can chart time for your spouse and children during the week.
  3. Discuss the reasons why it is important to listen to your wives.

Apply It

  1. Elders sometimes suffer from the fallacy of being a superhuman. Ask you wife if you have suffered from this fallacy. In fact, ask her if she has detected any of the temptations given by the speaker.
