Title: Gluttony | Temperance
TAKEAWAY: What was the most memorable part of this sermon for you?
GETTING STARTED: What do you think about this statement: “We have made gluttony our cultural motto, but ultimately, it doesn’t work. We will continue to starve spiritually”? Do you agree or disagree? Where do you see gluttony in your own life?
SCRIPTURE: Read Proverbs 23:1-5. Put this short passage in your own words – what is the author warning us against? How is this warning applicable to you right now?
DIGGING DEEPER: Think about a time when you intentionally said “no” to pleasure – through a fast, a diet, a budget, etc. How did that go? What were the results? How have you been changed?
NEW PERSPECTIVES: Two remedies for gluttony are fasting and feasting. How does celebration destroy gluttony? How can you incorporate this discipline into your spiritual life?
PRAYER: Name a specific prayer request in your journey to turn your gluttony into temperance. Pray for these together.
