Oct 19th Small Group News!

Welcome to another beautiful Monday!

Please join us tonight at 8 pm for our weekly Small Group meeting!

Tonight we will be discussing Herodias, who was a proud woman who used her daughter to manipulate her husband into doing her will.  She acted arrogantly, from beginning to end, in complete disregard for the laws of the land.

Her story can be found in Matthew 14:3-12 | Mark 6:14-29 | Luke 3:19-20; 9:7-9

Our questions for the night are these...

  1. Have you ever plotted, like Herodias, to get your own way? How does that make you feel about yourself?  Are you pleased when you get your own way, or is the result less than satisfying?
  2. John confronted Herod with his sin.  When someone confronts you with something that is wrong in your life, how do you respond?
  3. When have you done something you later wished you hadn't simply because of the pressure of those around you to do it?  What would have been a better response?

Food for Thought:

Note the different responses to John record in verses 19 and 20 (Mark 6).  Which response is more like yours when confronted with sin?  Are you like Herodias - sulking and wanting to get even with those who reveal your sin or failings? Or are you like Herod - willing to listen, curious about what the other person has to say?  Please explain.
