Discussion Questions:

Have you ever worked for a boss who wasn’t worthy of your best work?

While the Bible doesn’t explicitly give the role of deacons in the church, some have pointed to Acts 6 as a prototype model for deacon ministry. Read Acts 6:1-7. The seven were appointed to ensure the distribution of food for widows. How did their service facilitate the apostle’s ministry? What are the three results of their service listed in verse 7?

If the result of deacon ministry is that the gospel spreads and the number of disciples increases, how does that translate to deacon ministry today? What can the members, the elders, and the deacons at OGC do to ensure that the gospel spreads to our community?

Because Jesus served us when we had nothing to offer him, we can serve others who cannot (or will not) offer anything to us. How does this dynamic affect the relationship between parents and their adult children? How does this affect a marriage?
