Family Discussion Points:

*Open by reading Leviticus 19:18

  1. Why do you think God connects the second greatest commandment with not taking revenge or bearing a grudge against people in our community?
  2. Why are we more likely to be hurt by those close to us?
  3. How do you define a grudge? Have you ever held a grudge?
  4. If Jesus is our example, how can we justify not forgiving others?
  5. Take a moment and read Matthew 18:21-35. Why was the King so angry with the unmerciful servant? How do you think this relates to what Jesus says in Matthew 6:15 when he says that if we don’t forgive others, God will not forgive our offenses?
  6. Why are we so prone to want to seek vengeance? Has there ever been a time that you have wanted to do so? Would you be willing to share with the group?
  7. Why is God’s wrath better than any vengeance we could take?

* Close by asking God to help you forgive those that have hurt you and to trust him to hold them accountable.
