Group Discussion & Life Challenge
Use these notes as discussion prompts for your group, or in your personal time with God.
Get to know each other. Connect, warm up to each other, fellowship.
Carry each other’s burdens. Share life’s challenges and practice Soul Care. Pray together.
Dive into God’s Word. Use these discussion questions. Learn from each other’s insight.
- How do you do giving yourself grace when you make mistakes or don’t live up to your own standards?
- It’s normalized today to judge others when we find differences. What’s a practical way you could cultivate curiosity instead of a judgmental attitude towards others?
- Read Matthew 7:3-5, and Prov 27:6 again. Has your group given permission to help point where you need to grow into Kingdom living?
- Using Aaron’s 3 final questions—How would I like my enemies to treat me? How would I like the people I’ve wronged to confront me? How would I like the people I’ve let down to respond to me? Spend time as a group discussing these so you can walk it out with each other well.
- How can you express the generous love of God to each other and outward towards others this week?
Does anyone need clarity on something? Are there any big God questions you are wrestling with?
Celebrate life’s successes and God’s provision. Worship God’s presence. Time to brag about God.
Through the Bible in one Year
Join us in reading through the entire Bible in one year. Each day of this plan guides you through passages from both the Old and New Testaments, allowing you to see connections between the history of our faith, and the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan. Readings average four chapters in length, so it is posible to do. When you use the YouVersion Bible App, you can even have the app read the Bible text to you – very useful when you are in the car or otherwise occupied with your hand.
All you need to do is click the link to the Bible Plan, which should lead you straight to the Bible app. Your two options are now (1) to read the plan on your own, one day at the time. Or (2) you can make it more fun and rewarding, by sharing the plan with one or more friends, and then even “Talk about it”.
