Discussion Questions for Small Groups
1. Read Luke 19:11-26. If you were to make a list of the primary talents and gifts God has given you, what would you include? How do you think God wants you to invest those talents and gifts for His glory? Can you think of one thing you can do with one of those gifts and talents that you aren’t doing right now?
2. Read 1 Peter 4:10-11. Share an experience where you felt you were really being used by God. What are the benefits of giving our gifts, talents, and treasures in service to Jesus and others?
3. Read Ephesians 4:14-16. What is God teaching you right now? Some teachers suggest that everyone should have a Paul (some who is calling you up) and a Timothy (someone you are calling up). Do you agree? How has God used someone else to help you grow? How can you step into greater discipleship in your life right now?
4. Read Hebrews 10:24-25. Why is seeing us doing life and church together so important to God? What do you think holds people back from stepping into church life? How can we help them overcome that?
