Dealing with the reality of relationships and why you need them.
Series:The Man Who Had Everything   Passages: Ecclesiastes 4:7    Teacher: Dr. Clay Smith

Sermon Discussion Questions:


Starter:  Have you ever known someone who was successful but lonely?  In your opinion, why was that?



  • Read Ecclesiastes 4:8-12
  • Why does the man in verse 8 have to work so hard?  Why can’t he enjoy life?
  • Who have you known that brought out the best in you?  In what ways did that person come alongside you?  Why do we not experience more of that in church?
  • Has there been a time in your life when you felt like you fell?  Who came alongside you to pick you up?  What did that mean to you?  Why did the other person help you?
  • In your opinion, why is hard for people to be vulnerable?  Or to put it another way, why is hard to tell someone the truth?  Image what happens in a relationship among brothers and sisters in Christ who are not vulnerable.  What kind of church do they create?  Would it be healthy?
  • What situations call for you to take a stand alongside a friend?  When should you not stand to fight friend’s battle?  When should you?
  • Pick a relationship in your life and share how Jesus being in that relationship would change the relationship.  How Jesus being present change you?  How would it change your spouse, child, parent, or friend?
