May 23 – Honour: Rising Above the Cancel and Contempt Culture II // 1 Peter 2:17 – Paul Gazdik

3 Questions

  • How did last week’s challenge go? (Honour someone you’re not typically drawn to)
  • How does the example of Daniel and his friends civil disobedience compare to that of the believers who were imprisoned in either Acts 5:17-42, 12:1-18 or 16:16 (pick one)?
  • Read Luke 6:27-36. How did Jesus live these words out? How does this passage tie in to Sunday’s application points and to honouring those we disagree with?

May 16 – Honour: Rising Above the Cancel and Contempt Culture // 1 Peter 2:17 – Paul Gazdik

3 Questions

  • How did last week’s challenge go? (Take a 24 hour sabbath. Record and share how it impacted you and why?)
  • Read 1 Peter 2:17 & Romans 12:10. Why was honouring so critical for the early church? Who in your life today best exemplifies honouring others?
  • Read 2 Corinthians 5:16 & Matthew 12:35-36. Why is it so easy to jump to conclusions about people, or to see them through worldly eyes? How can we encourage one another to see people as Jesus sees them and to resist false judgements?

2 Prayer Prompts

  • Holy Spirit help me see others like you see them God, specifically . . . 
  • Holy Spirit show me who you want me to honour this week and how.
