Sermon-based Discussion Questions and Resources

*If you are watching this alone use these as reflection questions. You may want to journal and write down your responses. If you are watching with others, have one person lead the discussion by reading this discussion guide and questions out loud after you watch the sermon. 

  • Now What? What do you do when you don’t know what to do?
    • Life is always full of many circumstances and choices that are difficult to navigate. Then, we find ourselves in a situation like we are now and it makes everything even more complex. There are many unknowns and “what ifs” and it is overwhelming. The twists and turns of life can often leave us disoriented and not sure what to do or which way to go. In this series called “Now What?”, we are talking about the question “what do you do when you don’t know what to do?”.
    • THIS WEEK: We talked about “The Wisdom of Us”. HOW you grow in wisdom is OFTEN tied to a WHO. We become like the people we hang out with every day. Choose your friends wisely and seek out wise people. Use your wisdom to influence others in a wise way.
  • DIGGING DEEPER QUESTIONS
    • What stood out to you from the message?
    • How would you define wisdom?
    • Who is someone wise that you know? What do you see in their life that makes you think they are wise?
    • Who is someone wise you could spend more time with?
    • Who is someone you could influence with the wisdom God has given you?
  • NEXT STEPS
    • Pray the wisdom prayer based on James 1:5- “Lord, help me grow in wisdom… and use that wisdom in the life of others… and help me choose wise people to be in my life. Amen.”
    • Read 1 chapter of Proverbs a day. Proverbs has 31 chapters and there are 31 days in May, so read a chapter a day based on the date (Examples: May 10th read Proverbs 10, May 11th read Proverbs 11, Etc.)
    • Memorize Proverbs 13:20 “Walk with the wise and come wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
    • Think about the friends in your life and be intentional about choosing wise friends, as well as seeking out wise people.
