Questions to think through and pray through with your small group and family
Taken from the back of The Story book “Discussion Questions”
- What does God’s choice of Deborah as judge during this time reveal about God’s view of women?
- Why does God often use weak and uncertain people like Gideon to do His work?
- If you ever feel uncertain about your gifts and abilities, how could the story of Gideon encourage and strengthen you?
- What reasons can you give for why the Israelites kept repeating their downward cycle of sin?
- What was the root cause of Samson’s fall? What was the result?
- What are the strongest temptations that you face? How do you fight such temptations?
