Discussion Questions

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.

  • How much closet space do you have for yourself?
  • If you lost all your stuff tomorrow, how would you feel? Why?

Start thinking. Ask questions to get your group thinking.

  • Read Ecclesiastes 4:6. Do you spend more energy finding tranquility with "one handful" or chasing after that second handful? Explain.
  • What’s your top-three of what matters most in your life? How is “stuff” involved with this list?
  • Why do you think we tend to want more and more?

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.

  • Better is ________ with tranquility than ________ with stress and strife. Refer to Ecclesiastes 4:6 then fill in the blanks with your own personal examples.
  • When Craig said, “Cut back,” what’s the first thing you thought of?
  • Craig talked about how being rich isn’t having the most, it’s needing the least. What would make you need less?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

Jesus, You said we shouldn’t worry so much about what we eat and wear. You had no place to lay Your head. Can You teach us to need less? We want to be rich in love and generosity, not stuff. Amen.
