Talk it Over 1 –

Opening Question:

What is your most embarrassing moment at work/varsity/school?

Read:

Judges  9 & Rom 12:9

Context:

Jephthah was a Gideon’s son, born from a prostitute. His 70 half-brothers were heir to the throne of Gideon.  Because Abimelech knew that he would not inherit the throne & because he was rejected by his half-brothers, he killed almost all of them, with the exception of the youngest – Jotham.  The consequences of these actions led to Abimelech’s own people turning against him and eventually suffering an untimely death. We can therefore say that he reaped what he sewed.

Questions:

1)      What can we learn from Jephthah’s  actions?

 

2)      What are the consequences when we take matters into our own hands eg: revenge & not forgiving others?

Read Rom 12:9

 

3)    Is there anyone who is struggling with unforgiveness towards those who have wronged them?

Pray for these people – allow time for ministry.
