Discussion Questions

CG questions written by Caleb Lee.

  1. Read and meditate on Psalm 57. This is a psalm that David wrote as he was running from King Saul, living in caves in fear for his life. Discuss David’s heart of Thanksgiving.
  2. According to the sermon, the way that we give thanks to God should be different that the way that the world gives Thanks. Discuss the difference.
  3. One of the points of the sermon was that true Thanksgiving fights entitlement. Talk about a time in your life where you felt entitled. How did it feel? Talk about how your situation could have been different if you shifted yourself to a place of thanksgiving?
  4. Talk about a time when you were truly thankful to God, and how it helped your understanding of Him grow.
  5. God’s will is for us to be thankful in ALL circumstances. Discuss some areas of your life where thanksgiving doesn’t come easily.
  6. Talk about a fear or anxiety that you have. Then spend some time really praying and giving that fear/anxiety to the Lord (individually). Then come together and talk about how your perspectives have changed.
  7. Go around and share a personal testimony of Thanksgiving, that reveals God’s character and draws you closer to Him.
