Questions: The Wisdom of Generosity

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Micro Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Micro Group, feel free to use them on your own.

This week we continued our series called #Wisdom and talked about "The Wisdom of Generosity" If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. Describe a time in your life when you felt joy?
  2. Describe a time you found it hard to celebrate someone else’s joy?
  3. Describe a time when you had something good happen to you and someone made a comment about it that just deflated you?
  4. What is your internal conversation when you see a homeless person?
  5. Have you ever felt like God wanted you to take action but you didin’t? How did you feel afterwards?
  6. Read Zechariah 7:10. What does this say about God’s attitude toward making sure everyone has enough?
  7. Read Matthew 25:31-46. Jesus tells a story about how we treat those less fortunate enough. How does God plan on separating the sheep from the goats? What are the characteristics of the sheep versus the goats?
  8. What is your best next step as a result of hearing this message?
  9. Accountability Question: How have you allowed God to show you where you can generously invest your time, talent, and treasure into His Kingdom?
  10. Prayer Question: What could we be praying for you this week? (Is this there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
