LIFEgroup Questions for Heroes Week 2


* When is a time in your life when you felt especially accepted by people around you? When is a time when you felt those around you did not accept you? Why do you think being "accepted" is such an important desire for people?
* Read Hebrews 11:4, then read Genesis 4:3-4. Why do you think we are told that Abel brought the "firstborn of his flock" while Cain only brought some "fruit of the ground."?
* How would you respond if someone gave you a gift that they had already used and abused? Would you feel loved or would you feel unappreciated? Why?
* How are some ways people can offer God the first and best of what they have (time, gifts, resources, money, etc.)?
* How are some ways people often offer God their leftovers?
* If we truly trust God to take care of us, why wouldn't we offer him our first and best? Why do we often not really trust God?
* Does God accept our leftovers? Why or why not?
* What can you do this week to offer God the first and best you have? How can this group pray for you?

Discussion Questions for Easter

20 Questions to Build Group Connections

Here is a great exercise for a new group. The instructions are pretty simple. Go around the group giving each person the opportunity to choose one question and answer it honestly. Anyone can follow-up with an opinion or clarifying question (no critiquing each other's answers, though). Once a question has been answered, no one else may answer that question.

If your group is larger, you may want to alter the rule and allow each question to be answered 2 or 3 times. Ideally, each person should end up answering 3-5 questions.

As the leader, pay attention to the conversation. Let the discussion run its course as this is how people in the group build their relationships with one another. You can use these questions, modify them or create your own.
