We talked about one really big cause for this in most of our lives, what was it, and how does it cause us to make an idol out of appearance?
Debate the validity or impact of this statement: A lie believed as though it were truth, carries the power of truth in our lives.
How does that play a role in appearance addiction?
We said appearance lies to us in three big ways: 1. Improving my outward appearance will heal my inner brokenness. 2. How I look is who I am. 3. Being beautiful will get me what I want. Which one of those lies have you ever believed, or if you are honest, currently believe?
What were the consequences of believing those lies?
How does Colossians 2:8-10 help us turn the tide of being addicted to appearance?

The Quiz from Sunday (1 - 10):
Do you have a hard time concentrating if you don’t feel you look your best?
Are you easily annoyed or judgmental of those who look like you will never look?
I am often anxious or self-conscious about what I wear, how I look, or what people think of my appearance.
I tend to be more concerned about how I look on the outside than who I’m becoming on the inside.
I tend to make snap judgments about people when I first see them.
I often allow my appearance to dictate my mood.
