June 10th Sermon Discussion Questions

  1. What was the Jewish custom of fasting (16-18) supposed to express? When is it still appropriate? When does it go wrong?
  2. What is verse 19 telling us? In your imagination, what would happen if all believers took Jesus’s directions seriously? What would be the local impacts, for example?
  3. When we are too preoccupied with feathering our nests (beyond accommodating our real needs), what does that say about us, according to Jesus?
  4. What is the concept of ‘Christian capitalism’, as de ned this morning?
