Weekly Bible Reading Plan – July 12 – July 19

Matt 6.1-18 - Reading Slide - The Kings Speech (part 4)

 Questions to Guide You:

  1. In Matt 6:1, Jesus warns us about practicing our religion in front of folks, but in Matt 5:16, he says let your light shine; what’s the difference?
  2. What assumptions does Jesus make about the role of giving, prayer, and fasting in our lives?
  3. What are alms? How should we give so that our left hand doesn’t know? To avoid ostentation?
  4. What do we learn about God and prayer from the Lord’s Prayer?
  5. How should you act while fasting? Who should know you are fasting?
  6. 1 Kings 18 and Neh 1 give us OT examples of prayer. What do you notice about how these men pray? Do they pray like Jesus? What relation do you see between fasting and prayer?
  7. Phil 1 and Col 4 are NT Prayers, pray them for someone in your life.
  8. Jesus assumes we will do these things. So, what time of day will you regularly pray? Maybe put a reminder in your phone. What day of the month will you give away money to the poor? Maybe put a reminder in your calendar. When will you fast next? Reminder?
