Weekly Discussion Guide


Budgeting Magic

by Pastor Matt Manning on January 30, 2022


MY STORY | Vulnerability
Brainstorm movies and commercials and the messages they share about prosperity and security. What lies, or possible truths, come from public stories and advertisements? (7-10 min)

DIGGING DEEPER | Practical Biblical Application
Read Matthew 6:19-21.
What wisdom can you identify in this passage? With that, what makes the application of this wisdom hard?

How can you truly discern where your treasure is? How can we deceive ourselves? How have you deceived yourself? Yep, you’ve gotta share it!

GROWING TOGETHER | Spiritual Friendship
On a scale of 1-10, how much do you cling to “stuff”?

What are you most tempted to cling to? Is it an actual object or the feeling it gives you?

This is a hard one... WHY do you cling to that? What is under it that reveals something about your heart or values?

LIVING IN 4D | Missional Living
Marketing and our broken humanity cause people around us to cling to the possibility that “_____ will satisfy.” As you ponder that reality, is there someone in your circle of influence who comes to mind? Is there a way you could wade into that truth and share a nugget of wisdom to point them toward a lasting hope?

What is the one important thing you will take away from this weekend’s message or our community group discussion? Is there any challenge, difficulty or praise that you would like to share with the group for prayer?
