Discuss 1 Thessalonians 2:5-8

  1. In what way did God comfort, challenge, or correct you today?
  2. How do you define motherhood and what are it’s blessings?
  3. Do you depend on God’s grace to do your ministry? How can you depend more on God’s grace to do the work?
  4. In your work, are you preaching Jesus or manipulating people?
  5. Why do you do what you do? Is there love of God and love of others in your work, or are you driven by a love for money? How do you know?
  6. How can you fuel your desire to seek glory from God and decrease your desire to get glory from people?
  7. In what ways are you tempted to use your strength, authority, or influence for evil? In what ways can you use your strength, authority, or influence for God’s good purposes?
  8. Why are discipline and gentleness necessary to motherhood and ministry? What happens when the a person is more of a disciplinarian than gentle? What happens when a person is more gentle than a disciplinarian?
  9. The gospel is the greatest good we can give to others. What is the gospel and how can you more clearly explain the gospel to your children or neighbors?
  10. Make a list of 2-3 church members that you recognize but don’t know their names. Use the church directory to get familiar with their names and make an effort to connect with them next Sunday. Come early, stay late, get together, and talk about Jesus.
