Luke 13:1-5 - A Christian Response to Tragedy

Discussion Questions

  1. What is one truth or “take-away” from the sermon that you found particularly challenging/convicting/helpful? 
  2. How should we respond to someone who argues that suffering and evil prove that God does not exist?
  3. Is suffering always, never, or sometimes the result of personal sin? What are some Scripture passages that inform your answer?
  4. Do we have a tendency to look down on people who are going through difficult times as though they have somehow deserved it? What does Luke 13:1-5 say we have in common with those people, and how might that help change our attitude towards them? 
  5. What are some practical ways your community group can minister to those in our church body who are suffering?
