Get talking: a conversation starter for your group.

    • What evil is happening in our world, right now, that needs to be cancelled?
    • Why should we be concerned with evil when we see it?

 

Get specific: some questions to ponder in your group.

    • Paul talks about the fact that evil is all around us, it is a part of our world. How would you describe what evil looks like?
    • According to 2 Timothy, what does God describe evil as?

 

Go Deeper: Read Matthew 18:15-18.

    • What does Jesus say about how to handle offense?
    • When someone treats you in an evil way, what is a natural “human” response?
    • Have you seen someone deal with deal in a bad way? What did that look like? Have you seen someone deal with evil in a Godly way? What did that look like?

 

Prayer:

    • God, You gave us so much and we are grateful. Truly, our desire is to become more and more like you. A lot of times, we struggle for different reasons: selfish desires, being comfortable- but you’ve called us and given us models for faith- in Paul, in Christ. Help us to cancel the evil around us by seeing it, seeking truth, following the right examples and by responding to evil with good. We trust you, God. Amen.
