Good Questions by Josh Hunt
These kind of questions (except with more Bible verses!) are available every week for you to
use during your Bible study time. Lessons correspond with three of Lifeway's series. I have
been doing this for years and more than 2000 lesson are available with new ones added each
week. See www.joshhunt.com/sunday-school.htm for details.
- What have you learned so far? What have you been able to apply so far?
Do for others what they cannot do for themselves
- I always like to start with the Bible. Can you think of any biblical examples where
someone did something for others that they could not do for themselves? (1)
- Let's talk about the application of this in our families. How have you done this for your
kids? How have you introduced them to people they could not meet on their own?
Where have you taken them they could not go on their own?
- How did your parents do this for you?
- Who else has done this for you? Who has introduced you to people you could not have
otherwise met, or created opportunity for you that you could not have otherwise had?
Who has a story?
- What is the benefit of us doing this?
- What keeps us from doing this?
- One of the ways we can serve the people in our group is to push them into serving
opportunities. As they saying goes, even eagles need a push! Who pushed you into
- Who have you pushed into ministry?
- Who are some people in your group that are just about ready for you to push into
- One other thing we can give people is an idea. Let's talk about the power of an idea.
Who has a story about how a simple idea changed your life?
- What is one idea you have had that you are proud of?
- Have you ever given someone an idea that changed their life?
- Why can't people come up with ideas on their own?
- How can we pray for one another this week?
- What is one idea you have for applying this week's lesson?
1. Following this principle means becoming a little more like God. This is what God did for
us. He did for us what we could not do for ourselves
