5-Minute Meditations on the Sermon on the Mount (Chapter 6 of WHAT ON EARTH? a book by Barney Wiget)

Suggestions for Personal Reflection, Group Discussion, and Taking Action for:

Chapter 6 of WHAT ON EARTH? / Changed Hearts Change the World

  • Unpack this quote: “Jesus calls us to holiness and justice. Holiness involves dealing with the spark, the poisoned well, the root in our own hearts. Justice involves dealing with the wildfires, the raging rivers, the wicked trees in our world.”
  • Unpack MLK’s famous quote about the Church being “the conscience of the state … the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool.”
  • “Although the Bible is not a manual on social policy, it does offer us principles that structure our moral reasoning, which in turn affects the way we view such things.” Give an example of this.

Keep an eye out for the next chapter. Talk soon!
