When God Acts Strangely: (Luke 2)

Who is one historical figure (now dead) with whom you'd like to talk? What is one question you would ask?

What is a question to which you've never been able to find an answer?

If you could ask Jesus one question, what would it be?

Read Luke 2:41-50. Why do you think everyone was amazed by Jesus? What kinds of things do you think he was talking about? What types of questions do you think he was asking?

How can asking questions help us to grow spiritually? Is there a time or place when we should not ask questions? Are there questions we shouldn't ask?

Do you think Joseph and Mary were wrong in the way they treated Jesus in this passage? Why or why not? Do you think Jesus behaved a little strangely in this passage? Why or why not?

For parents, have your children ever not lived up to your expectations? What did you do?

For everyone, has God ever not met your expectations? What do you do when God doesn't do things the way you would like?

As a group, read Ephesians 3:20-21. What has God done for you that you couldn't even have imagined?

This week, when you find yourself questioning what God is doing, remind yourself of all He's already done for you. Then ask Him what He's doing!
