Reflection 10

Karl Haffner    Chicago 2013

1. Share your reaction to the media blitz surrounding Tim Tebow and Jerry Sandusky.

2. Do you think this story (Luke 18:9-14) is as offensive to us today as it was to the church leaders in Jesus’ day? Why or why not?

3. Who do you most identify with in the story? (Explain.)

4. How can one be more mindful of his/her true spiritual condition?

5. Unpack this statement from Jerry Bridges: “Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.
