JUSTICE FOR ALL: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM GENESIS ON JUSTICE
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: Integrity can withstand injustice.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Have you ever been hurt so badly by someone that you desperately wanted revenge? When we’re treated cruelly or unfairly, it’s natural to want justice. But what does “justice” really mean? Is it only about handing out consequences and punishment to the people who have wronged us? Or could it be about something more? How do we balance forgiveness and grace with truth and consequences? There’s someone in the Old Testament of the Bible whose life has a lot to teach us about justice. In this 4-week series, the story of Joseph will help us see that justice is love in action and that, when we’re wronged by others, we can hold on to hope, trust that integrity can withstand injustice, and learn to practice justice that restores what’s broken. 

DOWNLOAD THIS WEEK’S SMALL GROUP GUIDE

Check out THIS BOOK Geese are Never Swans, by Kobe Bryant and Eva Clark. This isn’t just a book about sports. It’s about disappointment, grief, anger, and letting our pain stretch us instead of break us. It’s not a book about God, but that doesn’t mean our conversations about the book can’t be! Give it a read and let’s talk about it. It might help us build resilience as a ministry team!

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
