James 2:1-13 - Consistent Compassion

Discussion Questions

  1. What is one truth or “take-away” from the sermon that you found particularly challenging/convicting/helpful? 
     
  2. When have you been guilty of treating people differently because of what they could offer you? What does James think of such partiality (See James 2:4)? What do such decisions reveal about our thought patterns?
     
  3. Will God judge our behavior toward others, and if so, what criteria will He judge by (See Matthew 12:36; 18:21-35, and Colossians 3:22-25)?
     
  4. Consider the people whom you pray for on a regular basis. Does the focus of your prayers reveal any partiality in your heart (i.e. praying only for people who are similar to you)?
