Reflection/Discussion Questions:

  1. When was the last time your heart was so gripped with the immensity of an issue that you felt compelled to do something about it?
  2. As you read scripture what are some of the issues that you noticed Jesus purposefully getting engaged in?
  3. What are some of the things that get in the way of you getting involved in issues that matter to God?
