- Have you ever had a memorable dream? What was weird about it? Why do you think you dreamed that dream? Did you wonder if it had any significant meaning?
- Read Daniel 2:5-6. Why do you think King Nebuchadnezzar challenges his wise men with such high stakes?
- Read Daniel 2:14-19. How is God at work in this situation? It might have been difficult for God’s people in exile to see how God was working this situation. Have you ever had an experience that seemed like a difficulty at the time of the experience but later you were able to see how God’s long term plan came together?
- Read Daniel 2:31-44. How is the Kingdom of God similar and different from kingdoms of earth? Do those similarities and differences hold when examining the “kingdom” we live in? How do we sometimes mistake the United States government with the Kingdom of God?
- Read Daniel 2:46-49. How do you think Daniel felt about receiving the honor of the King? How do you think the King’s wise men felt about Daniel’s ascension through the ranks?
- What do you learn about the nature of God from this story?
- What does it mean for us to be faithful today, even when living in exile?
- Pray that we would keep vision and perspective on the ever-enduring Kingdom of God.
