On Sunday, February 5, 2017 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on 1 Timothy 6:17-19. This message was part 2 in the “Generous Living” series. Below are a set of questions for personal reflection or group discussion related to this message.
- Read 1 Timothy 6:17-19
- By your own definition, what does it mean to be “rich”? Do you consider yourself “rich”? Why or why not?
- What are some examples you have seen that demonstrate the perishability of earthly riches?
- According to 1 Timothy 6:17-19, rich people are to do GOOD. A number of things were mentioned in the sermon today that were examples of doing “good” with your resources. Think through your own finances for a moment. Are there any particular areas where you were challenged to give more?
- What does it mean for you to be “generous” in your giving? Are there areas where you sense God wanting you to increase your generosity?
- What are some of the things you have given generously to in the past that have brought joy to your heart, and have brought “eternal rewards?”
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
