Learning on The Way
Share something with the group that you have failed at in your life.
Do you tend to think that if someone fails that they must have misheard God? How have you misjudged others because of this? What has been your response to your own failure? What did you learn about your heart through your response to that failure?
Does discipleship mean carpet bombing those who you perceive as the enemy in righteous indignation? Or does discipleship mean following Jesus on the road to Calvary which leads to suffering and death? Practically what is the difference between these two approaches in everyday life?
What does it look like in your life to not pursue the American Dream and instead radically pursuing following Jesus? What would change about the way you treat your possessions? What would change about your job?
