COMMUNITY MEDITATION

KNOW

  • When the people of Israel realized the aftermath of their war with Benjamin and their rash vows, how did they feel? Why didn’t they just repent? What do you think of their creative solutions to this problem?
  • Israel still exists at the end of Judges. Discuss how this is a wondrous work of grace. Why is God’s mercy and grace queally amazing towards sinners today?

FEEL

  • Why must we not presume on his rich kindness? Read Romans 2:1-5.
  • Israel was deserving of God’s judgment throughout the book of Judges yet he rescues them again and again. How is this similar to our own stories? How does God’s patience with us make you feel?

LIVE

  • Discuss the ways that confession, repentance and faith a superior path than the pattern we see in Judges 19-21.\
  • There is a common pattern in human life of: Sin, feel bad, try to fix it in our own ways, deflect, blame, sin some more, create a mess etc. Where does you life need to break free from this pattern?
