PART 1: Label Maker

Bottom Line

Who has the right to label you?


Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2


We all wear labels. Many of the labels we wear were placed on us by others—parents, siblings, friends, teachers, coaches, or coworkers. But what if we’re carrying around the wrong labels?

Who has the right to label you? Who are you going to allow to label you? Who knows best how to label you? Labels create expectations and expectations influence the direction of our lives.

Discussion questions

  1. What labels do you have? How do you those labels affect the way you behave?
  2. What labels do you think God would give you?
  3. What is one step you can take this week to begin to tear off your incorrect labels and let God label as he sees you?
