1. Is there anything in life that you thought you wouldn’t like, (passed judgment on it) and after experiencing it, your perspective has changed? (example: food, sport, hobby, person, music style, etc.)
2. This week we looked at the story of the Good Samaritan. In Verse Luke 10:25-29 the expert in the law wanted to justify himself…meaning know that he was following all the rules to please God. How do we sometimes fall into the same mindset of simply wanting to make sure God is happy with us?
3. Verses 30-33 we see the setting and who responded. The Samaritan is the one who responds with compassion. The Samaritan would be the opposing team to the Israelites. If Jesus were telling a modern day version to you, who would be the unlikely hero in your story? Who is the person or people group you have a tendency to judge?
4. In verse 33 it says he was on a journey and he “came upon” the man. The reality is you can’t go looking to judge people differently, our hearts have to already be prepped to respond differently/ uniquely when we come upon someone who others might judge. If you could ask God to change your heart, your thinking, your judgment what would you ask Him to work on today?
5. What could it look like for you to interact with others in such a way that you "disturb the fabric of society" so that that they have to rethink their lives? Perhaps it’s rethinking their perspective of Christian or Jesus.
