1. Plan ahead of time to share a meal together as a group. If you meet in the morning, make it a breakfast or brunch. If you meet later in the day, share a simple supper together. As you are eating, ask group members to name their favorite restaurant and talk about their favorite home-cooked meal.
Read John 6:22-35.
2. When you get hungry for food, your body normally lets you know through stomach growls, headaches, pains, or other signs. When you get hungry for God, what are the signs of hunger according to these verses?
3. What do nonbelievers do to try to satisfy their spiritual hunger according to these verses? What unproductive things have you seen nonbelievers do to satisfy spiritual hunger?
4. How has Jesus satisfied spiritual hunger in your life?
5. Spiritually speaking, what are you still hungry for?
6. In your prayer time, ask Jesus to satisfy your spiritual hunger and protect you from hungering and thirsting after the wrong things.
