May 26, 2013 – Morning Worship
Consider Romans 12:16 – what’s the point? How do we do it? Obey it? How does it apply to you?
“Never be wise in your own sight.” What does that mean? How do we do it?
Wednesday – Romans 12:17a; Proverbs 20:22; Matthew 5:38–48
“Repay no one evil for evil.” What does that mean? Sounds like it is unjust, unfair, unwise, etc. Is it? What’s the reasoning behind this command?
Look carefully at Romans 12:17b-18, especially the phrases “honorable in the sight of all” and “so far as it depends on you.” What’s being taught here?
“Beloved, never avenge yourselves.” Why? If we don’t, who will? Why is that better? (Extra credit: why do you think Paul begins with “beloved”?)
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him” “by doing so you will heap burning coals on his head.” What seems to be wrong with these two phrases? How can we apply them? How do we overcome evil with good?
