Discussion Episode | When Everything Goes Wrong
It feels like a lot has gone wrong in 2020 with COVID 19. You and your family may have some other things that have made life even more complicated and challenging amid everything that is going on. Today in your discussion, encourage one another to be vulnerable.
King Nebcubnezzer took Daniel and his three buds by force away from their home in Jerusalem to enter the Royal Service in Babylon.
When everything goes wrong God is still present and ready to help you through the difficult times.
- One of the difficult things when everything is going wrong; we often can’t see how God is working because we are so fearful and anxious about the situation. We often need our friends to help us understand how God is working. Imagine the conversation between Daniel and his three friends as they walked to Babylon.
- After arriving in Babylon and being served from the King’s table or kitchen, what would you hope to see on that table?
- Think back to a situation that was hard when everything seemed to go wrong. How did God help you through that time?
Tips and Tricks for leading a discussion
Listen carefully to each other and when someone has shared something vulnerable show your appreciation.
When everything goes wrong, we need a reminder of God’s presence. What is something that can tell you of God’s presence? Every time you see or hear that reminder, acknowledge God and say a little prayer.
At the end of your discussion, go around the group and ask for prayer requests.
