Inside Job: Generous Church

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Verve Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Group, feel free to use them on your own.
This week we began the series called Inside Job and talked about "Generous Church". If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. If you had an unlimited amount of money, what's the one thing you would splurge on?
  2. When have you felt like money has been a god in your life?
  3. Read 1 Timothy 6:17-18 in the New Testament of the Bible. In these verses, do you think Paul is only referring to you as rich if you have a lot of money? Why or why not?
  4. What does being generous mean to you?
  5. Why do you think it's been said earning more income doesn't make people more generous?
  6. What motivates you personally to be generous?
  7. Read Hebrews 10:24 in the New Testament of the Bible. If love is something we do, how can we motivate each other to do acts of love?
  8. Do you think you can be generous if you are forced to give something away? Why or why not?
  9. What scares you about giving far more than you can afford like is mentioned in 2 Corinthians 8:2-3 in the New Testament of the Bible? Why does this make you hesitant?
  10. Weekly Check In Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
