What does God think about my doubts? [Discovering, pt 4/6]
/

We all have questions and doubts about God. Unfortunately organized religion isn’t always accepting of skeptics and freethinkers. But what if God is big enough to handle our questions and doubts. What if he isn’t bothered or annoyed by our questions but actually invites them. What if it’s in our questions that we discover what God actually thinks about us?

– Dig: Choose to prioritize time to discovering who God is.

Discussion Questions:

  2. Of the 3 categories of questioners Jon described (afraid to ask, not allowed to ask, always asking but never reaching an answer) which do you relate to most? Why do you think that is?
  3. Read Proverbs 2:1-15. What are a few things that stand out to you in this passage?
  4. What are some questions you have about God? What are some ways you can explore those questions?
