This Sunday, we continue our series called, Reality Check, where we are learning from David what it looks like to live the “Jesus life” in the midst of all the drama that life throws at us. This week is one of those warm, fuzzy moments in David’s dramatic life, but there’s a twist! It’s one we all face, and, to be honest, I think it trips us up a lot! Hear about the twist and how
best to deal with it in your life!

  • What’s the kindest thing you’ve done for someone? What made it so special? Have you ever had someone do something like that for you? How did it make you feel?
  • Please read 2 Samuel 9:1-13. What kind of feelings are evoked in you when you read this passage? What do you believe David’s motivation was for being kind to Mephibosheth? Why does this kindness not make sense?
  • Outrageous generosity and compassion are hallmarks of Jesus’ ministry. Please read Luke 26-37. What do you think is the emphasis behind Jesus’ seemingly irrational perspective on how to treat people including your enemies? What are the dangers of living Jesus’ way? What are the potentials?
  • Living Jesus’ way puts people above everything else. How are you putting people above everything else in your life? What aspects of your life tend to push people to a secondary importance? What needs to change in your life?
