Small Group Recap / Memory Verse (8/16/06)

Small Group Recap
Last Wednesday we talked about "Extreme Forgiveness". The passage was Luke 6:27-38 when Jesus was saying things like "love your enemies", "do good to those who hate you", "bless those who curse you", "pray for those who mistreat you", "do not judge", and "do not condemn". In group, we talked about the difference between the world's standard and God's standard. We looked at why it's difficult to obey Jesus' commands and why it's so easy to do what the world says we should do. We also talked about how forgiveness benefits both the forgiver the person who is being forgiven. At the end of group, we broke up into guys and girls and prayed for each other.

Colossians 3:13
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
