  3. How does the eternal perspective appraise blessings and good outcomes in life, or suffering and hardship? What is the best the eternal perspective offers us? What is the natural outcome of the temporal perspective?
  4. What does “for me to live is Christ” mean? How is this reflected by our personal devotion, family responsibility, dedication to the church, and mission to the world?
