Personal Wisdom

What wisdom would you share with yourself?

If you could give any advice to your younger self, what would you say and at which age?

Leader note: People can have fun with this question by giving humorous answers, but it can also lead to some deep introspective discussion, so you can decide how you want to use it (I like encouraging both kinds of answers). Be clear that the point here isn’t to beat ourselves up over things we didn’t know when we were younger (that’s common to all people!), but instead to help us grow in our self-awareness, in learning from our mistakes, and in wisdom. Use it with a group that knows each other better, and consider it for a discussion about wisdom, God’s plans for our lives, purpose and direction, or maturing in our faith.
