To begin the session:
Distribute copies of the “Wisdom Sayings” exercise from the activity page, which you can download here, Have learners work in pairs to complete as indicated. If you’re meeting online, consider having the group complete the activity together. You might even fill it out yourself before class and share some of your answers to get the learners’ wheels turning.
Lead into Bible study by saying, “We often limit our expectations of others based on where they come from. It was no different in Jesus’ day. Let’s see how he handled it.”
To encourage personal application:
Distribute copies of the “Follow Godly Wisdom” exercise from the activity page as a take-home. If you’re meeting online, consider e-mailing the handout to learners before or during class. Alternately, you could go through the acronym together, brainstorming ideas as a group.
