Points for Thought and Dis­cus­sion from Work­ing

  1. In these days we see lots of scoffers. How do we regard, inter­act with those men­tioned in Prov 1:22
  2. Can we resolve to keep our words and med­it­a­tions accept­able to God? (Ps 19:14)
  3. What words spoken to you will you nev­er for­get? Who spoke them? (James 3:1)
  4. Who do you say Jesus is? (Mark 8:27)
