Discuss the Word
- How did you see God at work this week?
- What does Jesus mean by instructing us to not “judge”?
- Why are we so good at seeing the “specs” in others but ignoring our own “logs”? What needs to change?
- What logs do you need to deal with?
- How can you confront others in the same way you’d want to be confronted?
- Close your time praying for each other.
During the Week
You don’t have to bear the burden of your “logs.” God desires a relationship with you in every moment and invites you to come into his presence, meet with him, and find mercy and grace there.
In order for the Word of God to really take hold in our life we need to read it and listen to it consistently over time. It’s an eternal difference to move God’s Word the 18 inches from your head to your heart. To get there, we need to slow down and really meditate on it and put it into practice.
Below you will find a different question for each day of the week. Slowly reread the passage each day and then answer the corresponding question and complete the action step.
Read Matthew 7:1-6 daily before answering the questions:
Monday – Make a list of everything the passage tells you about God or Christ.
Tuesday – Make a list of everything the passage tells you about yourself (anything it puts a finger on in you).
Wednesday – Make a list of each example to follow or avoid, commands to obey or do, and promises to claim.
Thursday – If I really believed this, how would I be different?
Friday – Share what you have learned this week with a mentor, spouse, home church host, or a pastor.
Memory verse – Memorize and pray this prayer this week: Matthew 7:3-5 –3
“Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

Ways to Give
Giving of our finances is a response of worship to God who created us, saved us, and is continually at work in the lives of each of His children to reflect more and more of the character of Jesus Christ. Giving is an opportunity to respond to the gospel of Christ in a way that we can find our hearts freed to reflect the generous heart of God.
“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:7-8
