For further thought and discussion:

  1. Why is it so important for you to have hope? What happens when you begin to lose hope? Describe an occasion when you lost hope and how you may have gotten it back.
  2. The Kingdom was divided and the people were increasingly divided in their loyalty to their God. God describes Himself as being a jealous God (Exodus 20:4-5). In what sense is God jealous?
  3. God allows both Israel in the north and Judah in the south to be carried away into captivity (2 Kings 17:6, 23; 1 Chronicles 9:1). Why did God allow His people to be taken out of the land He promised to them? Read Jeremiah 33:7 and find the hopeful promise in that verse.
  4. Read Psalm 137. Imagine the feelings of the Israelites who were captives of the Babylonians. What feelings would you have if you were forcibly removed from your homeland? What would you feel toward God?
  5. God reminds the Israelites that His plan is bigger than they might have imagined. What are some specifics of God’s plan for you that you find encouraging and hope filled? What promises or truths about God can you hold onto?
  6. Read Hebrews 12:3-11. What is God’s discipline? Can you recall times of God’s discipline in your life? How is God’s discipline part of His plan for your life?
