  1. As a group, read both Exodus 20:8-11 and its parallel in Deuteronomy 5:12-15. What do you notice and what questions do you have?
  2.  These passages give two special reasons for why God wanted His people to rest. What were they, and why might they be important?
  3. Ben spoke about how we can often substitute true rest for escape or distraction. Which methods of escape or distraction do you sometimes pursue? What are the short-term and long-term results of this in our lives?
  4. How did this week’s message encourage you to remember and honor God’s gift of rest? What barriers or concerns might you still have?
  5. What steps will you take to make space for rest in your life?
  6. How does God’s gift of rest (especially as shown in Deuteronomy 5:12-15) remind you of His gift of salvation?
