Read Matthew 6:1 to Matthew 7:29

 

Tell about a time when you did something nice for someone else but you did in secret or anonymously.

 

Talk about the reasons you or anyone else might have for doing something nice for another person – especially a stranger.

 

How might it be possible to live out what Jesus says in Matthew 6:3?

 

Talk about your prayer life. Do you pray every day? Do you have certain prayers you say?

 

Talk about what Jesus might mean by Matthew 6:7?

 

Matthew 6:12 is actually quite a challenge. Do you feel you are able to live according to this request?

 

Part of the reason for fasting is to prevent habits or influences from controlling you. Talk about what things other than food you might try “fasting” from – TV, cell phone, Internet, FaceBook, etc.

 

How would you rate your ability to trust God to provide for what you need?

 

Matthew 6:33 is yet another challenge. What are your feelings about this statement? Can you live it out?

 

Talk about your understanding of Matthew 7:3-5.

 

Tell about a person you do not like. What is it about that person that makes you not like them?

 

Are any of the things you could change about yourself and your faith life “a plank” in your own eye?

 

What is the simple explanation for what Jesus says in Matthew 7:7-11? Does this give you any kind of hope?

 

Matthew 7:12 is what is known as “The Golden Rule.” How does it connect with Matthew 7:7-11?

 

Talk about what you see as the hardest part of being faithful to God.

 

What do you see as the meaning behind Matthew 7:13-14?

 

Matthew 7:24-27 is a familiar parable but most people miss the words “puts them into practice.” How do we put the words of Jesus into practice?
