Questions about whether God wants us to seek the common good, why God creates people who won’t accept Jesus, the meaning of “the Father is greater than I,” and explaining the story of God asking Abraham to sacrifice Isaac to young children.


  • Does the command in Jeremiah 29:7 to seek the common good while in exile apply to us today?
  • Why doesn’t God only create people He knows will accept Jesus?
  • What does Jesus mean by “the Father is greater than I”?
  • How would you explain to young children the story of God asking Abraham to offer up Isaac as a sacrifice?
