TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
Pilate asked him, “What is truth?” (John 18:38)
Every encounter with Jesus is unforgettable, and Pilate’s is no exception. However, his questions are not those of an inquiring disciple, but of one who holds authority over Jesus’ very life.
Tell of a time you weren’t sure what you were hearing was the truth or lies. How did you discern the truth?
- Wonder: Did Pilate believe Jesus was a king? Do you?
- Make a list of your top 5 values. Think of someone whose values differ from yours. How do your values shape what you perceive as truth?
PRAY: God of all truth, your thoughts are well beyond our own. Challenge us to look beyond our narrow assumptions, into a wider vision of how the world could be. For the sake of Jesus Christ, Amen.
BLESS: May God speak truth to you. Amen.
