Discussion Questions from Judges 7

In this Chapter of Judges we read about Gideon’s victory over the Midianites.  But it starts with God cutting down Gideon’s team from 32,000 to just 300.  He does this “so that you won’t be able to say ‘look what our hands have done.'”  God wants the Glory.


Does it seem “ok” that God wants glory?  Why not share it with Gideon and his army?

What are some things that we might trust in (instead of God) in our own context?

What are some things we might hope in, that ultimately may very well fail us?

What things feel “too hard” for you right now?  How can this story encourage you?

How has God rescued you in the past?

What is the nature of God when it comes to taking care of his people?
