CURRENT SERIES: Be Rich
PRIMARY TEXT: I Timothy 6:17
When growing up, remember when you sat in a friend’s car, visited their house, saw their bike or new dress? We are perfectly content with what we have until we see what someone else has. Share a childhood story when you discovered that your friend had something really awesome.
Who is someone in your life who has modeled generosity?
Read I Timothy 6:17. What are the two warnings given in this verse? In society, where do you see rich treated better? The poor worse?
It is easy to trust in the gift over the giver. In small groups of 3-4 people, share with each other. If you find yourself not trusting in God, where are you tempted to put your trust?
In these smaller groups, each share 2-3 possessions that you are most thankful for. Describe to this group why you are so appreciative.
Take 5-10 minutes to pray in smaller groups thanking God for the gifts He has given.
This series is about generosity. What attitudes stand in your way of being generous?
What area in your life or in a specific relationship can you be generous this week? If you get stuck, as a group brainstorm ways to be generous.
