Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: What have you given up or sacrificed for a love one? What have you given up to help a neighbor? Why do you give up something in the first place? Even a little sacrifice of time or money makes us think about why we do what we do. A huge sacrifice takes more love and generosity. At Christmas time we usually think about Jesus birth, but these verses have us looking to his death. Jesus was sent to earth to give his all for our sake. God’s love is truly apparent in the sacrifice of his Son.
