Discussion Questions

  1. How have you seen God working in your life and world this week?
  2.  What thoughts/feelings come up for you when you hear, “Our life isn’t meant to be spent on ourselves but to be purposely invested for others”? 
  3. Read Mathew 6:19-21 and 1 Timothy 6:17-19. Why do you think generosity is such an important aspect of following Jesus?
  4. Jon encouraged us to evaluate our resources and advised us to “evaluate, adjust, invest, and trust” this week. What is something you want to do in response to this and how can your group pray for you in that response?
