TAKE IT HOME:
Discuss this as a family this week:
-- What is one way that someone (a friend, a parent, God) has shown compassion to you this week?
-- Other than a plumb line, what are some other examples of standards you can think of (some to help you get started: a straight edge, a law, math rules)? Why is it important to have standards that we follow?
-- Do you think that it's right for God to judge us based on His standard? Why or why not?
