Leaving a Legacy
Take Away / Application
The greatest gift we can leave our families, is a spiritual legacy that’s rooted in Jesus Christ.
Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your Group or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have your group members figure things out together.
- As we wrap up this series, share a few things that have impacted you the most?
- Who comes to mind when you think about those you would want to pass down a lasting legacy—is it your family, your friends, etc.?
- What legacy, if any, was passed down to you? Share.
- Read Deuteronomy 6:3–9.
- We can’t pass along something we don’t possess. Read Deuteronomy 6:5. Discuss the meaning of heart, soul and might.
- Deuteronomy 6:5 is repeated several times in the Scriptures, Matthew 22:36, Mark 12:30, Luke 10:27, and 2 Kings 23:25…God clearly is trying to get our attention. How is this verse personally lived out in your life? Do you need to make any changes to live out this verse? Share.
- Building and leaving a spiritual legacy requires us to live out our faith with transparency and pass down the character traits that God is refining in us. When you are willing to share your experiences, your story, Jesus’ work in your life, how you respond to hardship, approach your work, manage money and make decisions, you bring tremendous, life-changing potential to those around you. What might this look like for you?
- Out of the 5 ways given on how we pass along our legacy, which one spoke to you most?
- If you’re single or newly married, have you ever thought about the legacy you’ll leave? How can you best prepare to leave a legacy that will last for eternity?
- Even when your life seems like a train wreck, God can and will use your experiences to help others grow when you trust Him with every area of you life, depend on His Word and live in community with other believers. How can your Group help keep you accountable to living out the verses we read in Deuteronomy?
- This week commit to memorizing Deuteronomy 6:5–7
