Discussion Questions:
Week of November 20th

This week's questions are based off of Pastor Brent Swanson's sermon, 'Practicing Gratitude'. You can use these questions as a study tool for  your weekly small group or for personal reflection/study.
1. Do you consider yourself a grateful person? Why or why not?
2. Why is gratitude a core Christian virtue? Why specifically should Christians cultivate gratitude?
3. Do you find it hard to be grateful? Why might cultivating gratitude be difficult?
     What barriers are there to being grateful?
4. How does the Psalmist cultivate gratitude? What faculties are involved in this cultivation?
5. How might a deeper understanding of the gospel create deeper gratitude?
6. Why is it important to speak words of gratitude (as opposed to just feeling it on the inside)?
