Think About It
- Identify a time when you have been able to gently speak the ‘truth’ to someone who was clearly on the wrong path. What was the outcome for you/for them?
- The Law of Moses – the Ten Commandments – provides a framework for righteous living. Jesus came to fulfil the Law – and the greatest of these is LOVE (Mt 22:38). What is or should be the difference between a Christian and a secular response to a wrongdoing?
- In the poem The Poison Tree Blake eloquently describes the insidious and pervasive weapon that our unspoken anger can become – the passive-aggressive pathway that will sooner or later ‘poison’ another if not dealt with. As disciples of Jesus we must hold ourselves to a higher account. What are some of the challenges involved in this?
