Life Questions
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read James 2:1-17 and think about the following:
(v1-9) How do we show favouritism? What could we do to better love our neighbours whoever they are?
Discuss how verse 12 should look in your lives.
(v13-17) What are the implications for living without ‘mercy’ or ‘deeds’?
