Discussion Questions:

What are a “helicopter parents” and what motivates them?

Jared spoke of what he called the greatest gift you can give others. What was it and why is it so much better than anything else we could give?

How was Jacob’s decision to settle in Shechem an example of half-hearted obedience? What impact did it have on his children?

How are we sometimes tempted to half-heartedly obey God? What might be the consequences?

What was wrong with Jacob holding his peace in Genesis 34:5? What impact did it have on his sons?

In what ways are we sometimes tempted to abdicate responsibility? How can that be a bad thing?

How did Jacob’s character rub off on his children? Are there deficiencies in your character that you have yet to deal with? What steps might you take to surrender those to God and have him further refine you?

How is Christ the answer to the corruption we have within us? How can our wholehearted obedience to God point others to him?
