Growth Group Discussion Guide

Sermon Response:

(1) What was your primary take-away from the sermon on Sunday? How did the Lord challenge you to apply the truth that you heard?

Study the Word:

(1) Read Proverbs 28:6. The Bible is making a value statement – that personal character is more important than temporary wealth. Do you agree with this statement? Give an example of someone choosing to do what is right even though it may cost them money.

(2) Read Proverbs 21:20. This proverb teaches the wisdom of saving for the future. Why do you think so many people today struggle with setting aside a portion of their income in savings? What is the difference between wise saving and foolish hoarding?

Personal Application:

(1) Of the four choices explained in the sermon, which one is the hardest for you to live out in practice? What do you need to do differently in order to make better choices in that area?

(2) In what area of money management have you seen the most growth over the last ten years? What helped you to change your behavior? Have you passed along what you learned to anyone else?
