Back to the Movies: Beauty and the Beast – Discussion Guide


Main Idea: You don’t have to let the current condition of your heart keep you from finding freedom.

Introduction: This week, Micah describes the condition of hearts…of the beast, Zaccheaus, and Paul. We see and hear how the condition of their hearts changes and how they become more selfless and more obedient.

Discussion Starter: Real Love is not something to keep locked away for yourself. Reflect for a moment and share: Is the condition of your heart selfless? Is the condition of your heart obedient?


Primary Scriptures: Philippians 2:5-8, Luke 19:3-4

Discussion Questions:

  1. This weekend, Micah had us do a lot of self reflecting on the condition of our hearts. Read Philippians 2:5-8. How are we living selfless and obedient lives?
  2. Is there something you feel God has been asking you to do? Is there something in your heart that is preventing you from listening to His voice?
  3. Is there an area in your life where you can begin to work on becoming more selfless or more obedient? Share with one another and make a plan to hold each other accountable this week.
  4. Real love is meant to be shared. Make a plan for how you will share what God is doing in your life with at least one other person this week.


Suggestion: Consider breaking the group into twos or threes for this section. 

What is God asking you to do? What would happen if you were obedient to do it?

In Beauty and the Beast, the beast has a change of heart. His actions reflect his selfless heart. What is the result of this change? Pray 1 John 3:18 over one another. What is one action you can take this week to love those around you?
