Memory Verses: Luke 11:28
Day 1: Read Matt 5:4, Luke 1:26-30, 49, 6:21 and discuss: Why isn’t “happy” the best synonym for blessed? Why was Mary favored, and what does (and doesn’t) that mean? Although you might not sinfully elevate Mary as the Catholic Church does, are there any people you inappropriately elevate in your life?
Day 2: Read Luke 8:19-21, 11:28 John 14:15 and discuss: Why do you think the woman made the exclamation she did? Why did Jesus respond the way He did? Why did Jesus minimize His relationship with His earthly family members? What can we do to have “elevated” relationships with Jesus? What is the relationship between love and obedience?
Day 3: Read Luke 6:46-49, 8:21, 11:28, Jam 1:22 and discuss: Why do we need to be reminded listening isn’t enough? What other reminders do we need? Pastor Scott gave two illustrations from teaching and coaching. What illustration can you give for people who hear without obeying?
