Page 87 of the Personal Study Guide has this quote from Randy Alcorn: “Selfishness is when we pursue gain at the expense of others.” As the men in your group reflect on this quote, show this clip from the movie Fun With Dick and Jane, in which Jim Carrey’s character shows up at a job interview, only to find that he is not the only one applying for the job.

Ask the men in your group,
- Have you ever done something to give yourself an edge in a situation (sports, work, an argument, etc) that you realize in hindsight was selfish?
- Does the desire to “win” sometimes make you act in selfish ways?
Direct focus back to Question 3 on page 87, and proceed with the session.
We want to hear from you. How will you help the men in your group explore the point, “Conflict can arise when I’m thinking only of myself”?
