What does it mean to live justly?

Watch and Discuss Together

To help facilitate an approachable and engaging learning environment for your group, check out our Facilitator Discussion Tips.


Read Leviticus 19:33-34, Exodus 23:9, and Proverbs 31:8-9. Who was vulnerable and mistreated in Israel’s society? What does God instruct Israel to do for the vulnerable and why?


How do you think humans' role as image bearers of God (e.g., Gen. 1:26-27) informs what the Bible says is right and just?


Read James 1:19-27 aloud. What is one example of how both powerful and vulnerable people might use anger to achieve justice and righteousness?


What does James say about the anger of humanity (James 1:19), and what does he urge us to do instead (James 1:19, 1:21-22, and 1:27)?


Take time to discuss other themes, questions, or key takeaways from what you learned together.
