Fighter Verses Philippians 4:10–11

10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

  1. How do you rejoice and show your gratitude when others express concern for you or give you help?
  2. Under what circumstances do you find it difficult to receive help from others?  Why?
  3. There may be instances when you need help, but nobody is available.  Is it right to assume nobody cares when your need is not met?  Why or why not?
  4. Discuss what would keep you from being able to meet somebody’s needs.
  5. How can you express your care for someone and your desire to help them, even if you are unable to provide them what they need?
  6. What could make Paul content (that is, believe that what he had was enough), even when he was not receiving the help he needed?
  7. Is it easy to be content when things don’t go your way?  How do you strive for contentment in all things?
