Discussion Questions

      • How can you be as faithful and loyal as the man’s friends? 
      • What kind of effort is required from us when we ask for help from God? 


“Often we describe a miracle as being healed without a full explanation by medical science or as avoiding catastrophic danger by heeding a clear prompting. However, defining a miracle as a beneficial event brought about through divine power that mortals do not understand gives an expanded perspective into matters more eternal in nature. This definition also allows us to contemplate the vital role of faith in the receipt of a miracle.”
