A small group can ask each other the following: 1. What do you like about the passage? Then everyone shares. 2. What bothered you about the passage? What was hard or difficult for you? Everyone shares. 3. What'd you learn about God? Everyone shares. 4. What did you learn about yourself, or people from the passage? Everyone shares. 5. What are you going to do about it? Write it down. Share. 6. Who are you going to tell about it? Share.
***Next week, you come back, and start with how you did with step 5 and 6. And everyone shares, and if everyone hasn't done it, the whole group waits again. This will vary from group to group, b/c you don't want people leaving for feeling TOO much pressure. But this does bring true accountability in love.
