Lesson 11 -- second quarter 2011
May 15, 2011
What does the Bible mean when it talks about offense?
What does it take to offend me? And why?
How do I mature beyond taking offense?
Am I sufficiently generous (and Biblical) in accepting others in the kingdom, even the one who "followeth not us"?
Which do I fear more: Erring on the side of acceptance or erring on the side of rejection?
"Offend one of these little ones" -- What is he talking about? And who?
How can I know whether or not I have offended someone in God's perspective?
How do I know which of these verses not to take literally?
What is my present status of saltiness?
Is there no hope for reasoning salt-free salt?
How high will I go in my bid for "peace one with another"?
Which do I treasure most: peace, my rights, being right, truth?
