Reading your Bible
What is the most difficult thing about reading your Bible for you? Talk to your group about ways to overcome that difficulty.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it-he will be blessed in what he does.
What stands out to you about this passage?
Lots of Christians know what is right and what is wrong but keep doing what is wrong. Why do you think we would do wrong even when we know it is wrong?
