Discussion Questions:

  1. What’s your background with the Bible? How familiar are you with what it says?
  2. In what ways do you see the Bible as applicable to your life and authoritative over your life? How does this work itself out in your daily life?
  3. Do you feel competent to offer counsel to others using God’s Word? How can you continue to grow in this area?
  4. How are you at receiving biblical counsel from others? Is it easy or hard for you to humbly accept truth from the Bible?
  5. Knowing that the health of your group depends in large part on the biblical literacy of its members, how does this convict or motivate you?
  6. How are we doing as a group in offering biblical counsel to one another? In what areas are we most prone to rely on worldly wisdom?
