- How do you get angry? Do you blow your stack? Do you throw things around? Are you a slow burner? Do you just go quiet? Share a time in your life when you got really angry. What happened?
- On Sunday, I said that the story of Cain and Abel was a story about the importance of confronting sin in our lives. I said, “unless we learn to master sin, sin will master us”. What are some of the most difficult sins you’ve had to master in your life?
- On Sunday, I said, “Sin doesn’t just become a presence inside you. It becomes a presence around you. In Galatians 6, the Bible tells us that when it comes to sin, “you reap what you sow.” In other words, sin does damage. It strains the created order, especially in human community. Have you noticed? Haters tend to be hated. Cowards tend to be deserted. Misers tend to turn miserable. He who lives by the sword will die by the sword. You reap what you sow.” Do think this is a true statement? Why or why not.
- Jesus said, “These people serve me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.” In other word, like Cain, we can perform the right religious ceremonies, but remain in sin. Why is the condition of our heart so important to the Lord? What are some activities that help you open your heart to God?
- Read Psalm 51 together out loud. Why is it so important that we realize that our sins first and foremost hurt God? Spend some time together asking God to wash your sins away and to make you as white as snow.
