Aaron is a leader with FCA at the University of Kentucky, a husband and a father. Scott and Aaron discuss our identity and purpose apart from vocation and deal with the question, “why do I do what I do?”

Group Questions:

  1. Who are some of the great coaches or mentors you’ve had? What made them impactful in your life?
  2. The questions Aaron loves to ask coaches are: Why do you coach? What’s your purpose? Why do you coach the way you coach? What does it feel like to be coached that way?  Substitute your roles in life: husband, father, leader, etc. Why do you do what you do?
  3. Passion will run out, but purpose will sustain you. What does that mean for your life? Are you fueled by passion or purpose?
  4.  “There are three hard things: Steel. Diamonds. And to know one’s self.” - Benjamin Franklin. Who is helping you see the blind spots in your life?
  5. Read Ecclesiastes 4:8-12. How does this passage speak about purpose? Why do we need others in our lives?
  6. Men tend to isolate themselves. Looking for an escape or driven by fear we think we are pursuing safety. We’re actually putting ourselves in real danger. Where do you see this in your own life?
  7. How can you be more intentional in your relationships this week (at home, at work, at church, etc.)? Share some good practices.
  8. Aaron ends with a question - would you rather have a map or a mentor? Who is someone you could ask to invest in you?
