2: Conformity

{bible 31}Daniel 1{/bible}

‘Fitting in’ tends to be easier than ‘standing out’. How can you ensure that you stay a follower of God rather than a follower of the crowd?

If you were one of the captives being assimilated, as Daniel was, what other pressures, besides the food issue, would you have wrestled with?

In our society, what are the main areas where you feel pressured to conform?

How do you discern which pressures you need to resist and which to accept?

Daniel resisted the pressure to conform in a very humble way, how might we resist without portraying an arrogant “I’ve got it right” attitude?

Is there a specific pressure you need to resist personally, at work, home, etc.? How might your small group help you move beyond conformity?
