The following questions are connected to Sunday's gospel reading for you to use in your home or if you are joining up to five other people to watch worship and discuss the questions

1.  We can be just like Jonah, wishing punishment verses healing on our enemies.  Why do you think that is?  

2.  Have you ever been like Jonah, not wanting healing for an enemy.  How did God's grace for you play into your wrestling with these feelings?

3.  Have you ever been witness to someone being forgiven and/or offered healing?  Maybe from addiction, hurting another person, etc...  What did you feel inside when you experienced seeing them healed or made whole or restored again?

4.  Where do you usually place yourself in the story of the landowner?  As you think about God's grace, does this story move you to be even more amazed by God's generosity?

The following questions are connected to Sunday's gospel reading for you to use in your home or if you are joining up to five other people to watch worship and discuss the questions

 

1. What makes forgiveness so hard to offer at times?

2.  If you are holding forgiveness from another, what is holding you back from offering it?  How is that holding it back affecting you?

3.  7 is a perfect number in Hebrew thinking and in Jesus day.  Jesus tells Peter to forgive "77 times," essentially meaning always.  How do you imagine Peter responded to the answer of Jesus?

4.  How does our human struggle with forgiveness help you see the extravagance and grace of God's forgiveness?

5.  Is there a time you offered forgiveness and the person received it with humility or joy?  How did that feel for you and how did it affect your relationship moving forward?  Have you been given forgiveness you asked for from another person?  How did that feel for you and how did it affect your relationship moving forward?

The following questions are connected to Sunday's gospel reading for you to use in your home or if you are joining up to five other people to watch worship and discuss the questions

 

1.  Why do you think step one in our Gospel reading of going directly to the person that hurt us first and talking to them one on one before saying a word to anyone else is so hard?

2.  What are the dangers to the community when we don't follow this first step and instead first share our frustrations with others first?

3.  Have you seen this guidance from Jesus used first hand?  What was difficult about it and what was helpful about it?

4.  The goal of our Matthew text is always reconciliation.  Does all reconciliation look the same?  If not, what are the possible options that reconciliation might look like?

5.  Paul reminds us in our Romans text that "Loving your neighbor" sums up the whole of the commandments.  Is that how you think about living out the commandments?  How does viewing the commandments in this way change your perspective on following them?  Or does it not change anything in regards to following the commandments for you?
