3. Can you think of a time that you were not grateful for something God had done for you? Why is it easy for us to forget God's grace and not have gratitude?

4. Name some of the ways that you've seen God work on your behalf.

What Good is Salt Without Taste? Matthew 5:13-16 (July 20, 2014)

1. In this passage, what does Jesus tell us about our identity?

2. From the sermon, what are two ways that the church can engage in the world?

3. Do you find yourself more prone to one of these ways more than the other?  What are some positive and negative aspects about both these ways?

4. Where are the places that you can act as an agent of "halt" and as an agent of "help" in your spheres?

Take some time and pray together, asking God to give you opportunities to be a man and woman who acts to halt and to help.
