SGQ - April 15, 2018

    Matthew 25:34-40
    I Corinthians 13:1-8

    1. On a map, locate the island of Lesvos in the Aegean Sea. Now try to find the countries represented by the refugee population in Camp Moria and make a guess as to how far the refugees might have traveled (Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Morocco, Eritrea, Republic of Congo).

     

    1. The Syrian civil war is now in its eighth year. More than half the hospitals in Syria have been destroyed. Children’s school attendance has dropped by more than half. Of the 17 million people in Syria, 6.6 million have been displaced within the country while 4.8 million others have fled the country.  Imagine what it would take for you to flee your home, your job and country with only the clothes on your back.  Where would you go?  What would be your priority for resettling?

     

    1. Describe a time when you “gave a cup of cold water” to someone who couldn’t give you anything back. What’s the difference in doing something as the “hands and feet of Christ” and doing something as though we were doing to Jesus himself, “ Whatever you did for the least of these…, you did for me”?   How does it affect how you see the work you’re doing?

     

    1. Read Proverbs 3:27 aloud. “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in you power to act.” Which stories from the Mission Team in Camp Moria touched you and why? How might God be challenging you to do?

     

    1. If God’s love is the antidote for human envy, what are we called to give in the name of love, that others long for so desperately? Where is love needed around here?  What will you do about it?
