1. Review your notes from Sunday. Here’s a few quotes:

"Wealth has side effects. For example, rich people have a hard time admitting they are rich."
"If you earn $40,000 a year, you are in the top 4% of wage earners in the world. If you earn $48,000 a year, you’re in the top 1%. Most of us are rich."
"Another side effect of being rich is discontentment. The more you have, the more you want."

2. How do you define “rich”? In your opinion, how much money does someone have to make in order to be considered wealthy?

3. When it comes to money and finances, what are your hopes, dreams, and goals?

4. When the question was asked, “How much money would you need to secure your future against all imaginable eventualities?” What went through your mind?

5. Read 1 Timothy 6:17-19. Does this passage challenge any assumptions you have about wealth? According to Paul, how can someone learn to be good at being rich?
