Inspiration, week 1

We will begin our discussion of Inspiration during our lessons this week.  We’ll be talking together about the basic meaning of Inspiration.  Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:

“Make each day your masterpiece.” — John Wooden (college basketball coach, author)

Inspiration:  a person, place or experience that makes us want to do or create something;  a force or influence that inspires us.

When we think about inspiration, what comes to mind for most of us are ordinary people who have done extraordinary things that inspire us.  We appreciate when someone steps forward and offers creative, innovative, and selfless leadership.  People like Rosa Parks, John Wooden, and Chuck Norris are all ordinary people whose extraordinary example inspires us.  They are all people who saw that they could make an important difference in the world around them, despite all the odds, and had the courage to actually go out and try.  Their example inspires us to do things ourselves that will make a difference.

Discussion Questions:

  1.  Who is someone that inspires you?
  2.  What is it about them you find really excites and inspires you?
  3.   How can you be an inspiration to someone else?
