Faith, the Virus, and the Vaccine 4: The Way through the Crisis
Week commencing 24th January 2021
Mark 12: 28-42
1. Bernard of Clairvaux refers to three stages of love for God:
a) We love God for our own sake i.e. for what he can do for us.
b) We love God for God’s sake i.e. we praise Him for His character.
c) We love ourselves for God’s sake, i.e. we join with God in seeing ourselves in a compassionate and gracious light.
Which of these is the easiest and the hardest for you, and why?
2. Share the last time someone outside your family lived out this principle of loving their neighbour, by doing something for you? How did you feel, and what was your response?
3. How good are you at reading your physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual gauges? On a scale of 1-10 where would you place yourself in these areas?
MOST IMPORTANT: How do you improve these “scores”? Share with others what you find helpful.
