I’m reading the book In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day by Mark Batterson with a couple of students from crew.

A couple of lines from chapter two stuck out to me.

“Most of our problems are not circumstantial. Most of our problems are perceptual.”


“The more we grow, the bigger God should get. And the bigger God gets, the smaller our lions will become.”

Batterson makes the point that our view of God directly impacts how we deal with life and ultimately who we become.

What would it be like if we let God get bigger when our problems are seemingly too big to handle?

For that matter, at what point do we cease to have problems? (In other words, if God is the “biggest” then what problems could we possible have to worry about?)
