You can do this alone, with a friend, or in a small group.

  1. Share a time in your life where you crossed paths with someone who’s values were completely opposite from yours and how that interaction helped you to be clearer about how to live according to your values. Be specific.
  2. Read 1 Kings 19:1-3 and 2 Kings 9:30-37, The Message
    • What is one thought or idea from these scriptures especially intrigued, provoked, disturbed, challenge, encouraged, warmed, warned, helped, or surprised you?
  3. We are in the middle of a worship series entitled: From the Outskirts. In this series we explore Biblical characters who played minor but important roles in the Bible.
    • Why do you think that Jezebel is included in this group?
    • What impact did Jezebel have on Israel (if you didn’t hear the sermon you may need to scan 1 King 16:29-2 Kings 9:37)
    • What does Jezebel teach us about following in the Way of Jesus (it may be a teaching of what not to do)?
  4. John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, believed that we could follow all of Jesus’ teachings if we remembered these three simple rules:
    • Do No Harm
    • Do all the good you can
    • Stay in love with God
      • How have you practiced living by these rules in the last week?
