Message Series: James 1: Part 1
This series we are spending three weeks on James 1:19-27. We’ll be talking more about what it means to live out our faith actively every day.
Here are some of questions related to this week’s theme:
– How was your week? What’s new?
– When are you most likely to lose your temper?
– Who do you look up to as an example of someone who is “quick to listen and slow to get angry?”
– What did you think of the message tonight? What stood out to you? Why or why not?
– James tells us to be “quick to hear, slow to speak.” Have you had situations where you did the opposite—slow to hear, quick to speak? What’s the problem with that?
– What does the word righteous mean? What does righteous mean in connection to God?
– What is the relationship between anger and righteous living?
– How can being quick to speak and quick to anger get you into trouble?
– What do you seem to react quickly to in anger? (Example: When someone cuts me off while I am talking, I get angry easily).
– What makes it hard for you to be a good listener? When do you listen well? When don’t you want to listen?
– How do displays of anger and temper affect how we represent Jesus to others in our lives?
– Remember to check out upcoming events!
