03.10.2019 | “Jesus Wept | Week 1: Injustice”
Join the community and go deeper with this Bible study.
What is your concept of “justice”, especially as it might relate to people of faith?
What do you think about when you hear the phrase “God’s justice.”
Read Micah 6:6-8
Do you see the connection (or, more accurately, the DIS-connection) between Sunday worship and Monday through Saturday life, especially as it relates to issues of justice and mercy?
Put another way, do you see your Monday through Saturday life as being as important to God as your Sunday worship? Why or why not?
If you struggle to make that connection, what are some ways in which you can make some progress in that area?
On Sunday, Eric mentioned that often what we mean by “justice” is the idea of MERCY for me, and JUSTICE for everyone else.
Is this true of you? How have you seen this play out in your life?
Who are some people/groups that you struggle to extend mercy to?
What would it mean to see them as God sees them?
