COMMUNITY MEDITATION

KNOW

  • Discuss the four metaphors for growth given in the Scriptures today. Organic, personal maturing, battles and building. Do you find yourself drawn towards one of them?
  • Why does hope need to have a foundation? Read Hebrews 6:13-20 again. How is an anchor for a ship, similar to a foundation to a house? What do both provide?

FEEL

  • Why do so many of us place our hopes on riches?
  • How can life disappointments reveal to us we've been setting our hopes on faulty foundations?

LIVE

  • What good works can you do for others in your home? In our church? In your community?
  • How is love the motivation for your obedience? How does your obedience make you truly rich?
