Application for May 11-12, 2013 :: Romans 12:14-16


===

Romans 12: 14-16

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.

That person who always seems to be on your case – who says bad things about you – who makes life difficult for you – what do you say to them? Do you bless them?

That person who always seem to catch every break and everything seems to go their way. How do you respond when you hear that they’ve had another good thing happen to them?

And the person who seems to experience failure after failure – what are your thoughts when you hear about their more recent difficulty?

Are there people with who you have difficulty living in harmony with? What are you doing to amend this?

Are their people in your neighborhood in church who you don’t really feel like spending time with. Do you anyway?

What’s your opinion of your own level of wisdom?

These are challenging questions, aren’t they?
