Sermon Reflections 61

Wednesday May 10, 2017
Parents and Children
Colossians 3:20-21
May 7, 2017
 
FRAMING IT UP
In remembering the sermon, answer these questions: 
 
What is the relationship between obeying and honoring your parents?
How does obedience and honor to our parents teach us about our relationship with the Father?
Read Proverbs 1. How does Solomon emphasize the duty of parents to their children? And children to their parents?
When does the line get crossed between discipline and cruelty?
 
FILLING IT IN
Take some time to meditate on the same truth in these verses:
 
Proverbs 3:11-12, 13:24, 22:15; Hebrews 12:1-12; Ephesians 6:1-4
 
WORKING OUT YOUR SALVATION
As God's Word exposes my heart, what does this mean for my life?
 
How do you know when enough discipline has been administered (Prov 22:15)?
 
How does a heart disposition of selfishness and/or anger turn biblical discipline into abuse? What about a heart of love?
