Discussion | God Opposes Pride

Jon: You are listening to the discussion questions for “God Opposes Pride”

Bradon:  We followed the many moves that the Ark of the Covenant had after the Israelites were defeated and it was taken by the Philistines. The Philistines suffered horrible tumors in all the cities the Ark would be taken. They suffered much disease and death with the Ark in their nation. So much so they returned it to the Israelites after seven months.

Story Episode
1 Samuel 4:1 – 7:2


  1. Name one thing you are proud of – not prideful in?
  2. Why do you think God continued to send plagues even after the Ark was moved from City to City?
  3. If you could have one question answered right now about the bible, God, or Jesus, what would that question be?

Growth Tip

Jon: A growth tip is a way we believe can help you in a growing relationship with Jesus! I want this one to be FUN! 

Bradon: You want everything to be fun… 

Jon: there is nothing wrong with Fun! Fun is one… you are the one who invented that! 

Bradon: Very true! okay … fun … fun … 

Jon: Okay, let me take this one, for the growth tip this week. Do one thing you have never done before! Try new food, make a new friend, listen to a different style of music, whatever you want! 

Then share that experience with God. journal it or pray about it. Share what you thought, what you liked, what you didn’t like. Would you try that thing a second time? 

Bradon: Oh, I actually REALLY like this one! God wants all of us, to share each moment of our life with Him. This is a really fun way to share something with God! 

Jon: See Fun! I told you so!
