MESSAGE NOTES

Human – Sin
2 Samuel 11 & 12
Norm Lewis

The Big Idea: God wants us dependent upon Him in both adversity and prosperity.

  • David’s Adversity
  • David’s Prosperity
  • David’s Sin

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

Quick Review: Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged or confused you?

Discussion Questions:

  1. Think of the times you faced adversity in your life. How did this cause you to be dependent on God? (1 Corinthians 10:13)
  2. Why are we so quick to release our need for God during times of prosperity? (James 4:6)
  3. David’s sin did not stop with Bathsheba, but exploded into others’ lives. Talk about how one sin can start you down a slippery slope. (James 1:14-15) What can we do to prevent this? (James 4:7-8)
  4. Read Psalm 32:3-4. Think about a time when you could not escape your disobedience to God. What did you think and feel? What did it take for you to acknowledge your disobedience to God?
