GROWTH GROUP / PERSONAL REFLECTION QUESTIONS

1. How do you determine what your priorities are?

2. What would you say your priorities are?

3. In light of Luke 11:37-54, how can we ensure we prioritize inner righteousness over external religious displays?

6. In this passage, Jesus delivers a series of woes to the Pharisees. How might we apply these warnings to our own lives?

7. What are some practical steps you can take to have your priorities line up with Jesus'?
