I had a small conversation with someone which started with the cultural norm:
“How are you?”
He stopped after asking, and then changed his question to questions in an effort to actually get some real insight about my life, and not just the answer “good.”
1. What is something you are looking forward to and excited about in your life as of late?
2. What is something that is tough for you right now? And something you are really having to trust the Lord with?
Feel free to post your own ideas and questions, and please feel free to answer the above two.
Let’s actually bring some substance to “How are you?” by asking, and answering, new questions.
