REFLECT:

•Who are Paul & Silas?

•What happens to them?

•Why are they in prison?

•How do you imagine they felt when they were in prison? How would you feel?

•Paul & Silas were able to praise God in the midst of their circumstance. How is this difficult?

READ: Philippians 4:10-14

•What do you think Paul is saying here?

•What does it mean to be content?

  •What brings contentment for Paul?

•How do we see this lived out in the story we acted out earlier?

•How do Paul’s words here push against our culture?

•Verse 13 is often quoted. How does reading it in context impact our understanding of this verse?

•What does contentment have to do with our theme verse (Phil. 4:4)?

•How have you experienced the truth of these verses in your life?

•How can we experience contentment in our lives? What does it look like for you to live this out?
