Discussion questions for your friends and family this week:

2- Is it common in Scripture for God’s people to suffer? If so, why might that be?

3- Is there an affliction in your life that forces you to lean into God’s strength?

Take time to pray together. Tell God that you know his grace is sufficient for you.
