Walking Justly!, Nov. 26-Dec. 2

Isaiah 1:4, 21-23; 3:14-15; 58:6-7

Discussion Questions

  1. What is the relationship between right worship and just relationships? How might this principle be lived out in your life?
  2. Define the two crisis categories: relief & rehabilitation? Where do you see these being used appropriately? Inappropriately?
  3. Define development? Where are you using development principles in walking with others?
  4. Where have you seen relief or rehabilitation used in situations calling for development?
  5. Why is paternalism so damaging? Where is it easy to fall into this practice?
  6. How should we walk with fellow image bearers of God in a dignified way? What is the core goal?
