Scripture | Exodus 20:17 + Matthew 22:34-40

Theme: Do not covet.

Discussion Questions:

  1. In your own words, why do you think God gave us the Ten Commandments? Who are they for? What's their purpose?
  2. Read Matthew 22.:34-40. Why do you think Jesus summarized the Ten Commandments in this way? How do you think Jesus would define "love" as he uses it?
  3. Which one do you think is easier to accomplish: keeping Ten Commandments or loving God and Neighbor. Why or why not?
  4. Read Exodus 20:17. Define "covet" in your own words (only resort to Google after you've exhausted your own thoughts!). What are some examples of coveting?
  5. First, Context: How might this last commandment summarize the previous 9?
  6. What are you coveting? Why?
  7. As uncomfortable as answering question 6 was, why might it be good for us to realize our covetousness?
  8. How is the Gospel good news given our covetousness? How might God's love make us covet less?
