Readings

7 Women (Chapter 7), by Eric Metaxas

Discussion Questions

  1. What is your main takeaway from Mother Teresa’s life?
  2. The ability to feel compassion is a creation of God’s. Why do you think God created us to feel compassion towards those in need?
  3. After Mother Teresa passed away it was revealed that there were times she felt abandoned by God even though she was doing God’s work. Why do you think God allows us to go through such moments when we are doing what He has called us to do? How can we prepare ourselves knowing that such feelings may happen to us as well?

Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.” (Deut. 8:2-3)

  1. Mother Teresa felt God telling her to help the poor in an uncommon way—to live among them instead of living in the convent. To leave the convent was not easy as she stated it was the most difficult thing she had ever done. In following God’s call, what are the challenges you expect to face?
  2. In the Lifework Workbook the article “Insights on Compassion” states that Mother Teresa was once asked, “How did God call you to serve the poor?” She replied by saying, “I was not called to serve the poor, rather I was called to serve Jesus and He lead me here.” What is your takeaway from Mother Teresa’s response?
  3. Mother Teresa had a saying, “Faithfulness, not success.” What does that mean to you?
