Here are a number of questions for discussion in families or in Redemption Community small groups. For more information about RCs, click here.
1. Complaints — Read Philippians 2:14 together. Why do we drift towards grumbling with such frequency? What heart condition is behind this type of complaining?
2. Responses — Read James 1:19 together as a group. Why is it so difficult to listen? Why do we feel the need to speak about things we don’t fully understand? When people bring up matters of injustice, why do people who haven’t experienced that particular injustice tend to speak rather than listen?
3. Duties — Read Acts 6:3. What are some things we can do as Christians to help our “duties” feel like “delights”? What heart conditions had to be present in these men to respond to this “duty”? How can we cultivate those heart conditions in ourselves?
4. Symphonies — Make a list of the evidences of God’s grace in Acts 6:1-7. What are the evidences of God’s grace in your RC? How do you see these things working together to form a compelling symphony? Spend time in prayer as a group thanking God for his work amongst you individually and corporately.
