Live Simply So Other People Can Simply Live.

Live Simply So Other People Can Simply Live.

God is our Comforter

Bible: Jeremiah 8:18; Psalm 119:49-51; Isaiah 49:13; John 14:16

Discussion starter:

Not many of us are faced with such difficult decisions like Jason’s. But we will all face moments in our lives where we question our decisions, perhaps regretting the decisions we have made for years to come.

Have you ever noticed there is a relationship between regret and comfort? Sometimes a decision, even a correctly made one, leads to suffering. And when you suffer you naturally question yourself, “Have I made the right decision?

The Psalmist writes about this in Psalm 119:49-50:
Remember your word to your servant,
for you have given me hope.
My comfort in my suffering is this:
Your promise preserves my life.

3 Questions:

  1. Have you ever had a time when you had to make a huge decision in a hurry?
  2. Would you rather love a person and then lose them or never love a person at all?
  3. Why do you think Jason ties a story about his mom dying into taking care of the poor?

Chew on this:

In John 14:16 Jesus described the Holy Spirit as “a Comforter.” What does this reveal about God’s character?
