2 Kings 5:1-14

We all have blind spots, especially in the areas that direct our life, and we all have the propensity to be oblivious to things that seem obvious to those around us. Do you wish that there was something that could have prevented you from making foolish decisions that only become obvious as foolish after you made them?

  1. Has there been a time in your life when you believed you knew what the correct decision was for you to make, and found out later that your friends or family had seen the obvious pitfalls that you missed?
  2. Read 2 Kings 5:1-12. How do our feelings have the power to make us oblivious to the things that are incredibly obvious to those around us? Can you think of a time in your life where you trusted your feelings and acted on them, and experienced regret?
  3. How was Naaman’s life impacted in 2 Kings 5:11-14 by someone who was willing to bring clarity to him? What do these verses tell us about the importance of the clarity that is brought to us through those in our community?
  4. How does Hebrews 3:12-13 illustrate that living by faith is more of a “we” thing than just a “me” thing? What are some of the ways you guard yourself from missing the obvious?
  5. Who are some of the people around you who have permission to bring clarity into your life? Have you ever considered that you might also be the person to bring clarity into someone else’s life?
  6. As a group member what has been the biggest impact of Life Groups on your life? Do you have friends or family members who would benefit from joining biblical community?
