In our small groups, we will be studying Dane Ortlund’s book Gentle and Lowly. Below, you will find the recommended chapters for each week, and some discussion questions to ponder while you read.
Chapters to Read: 17-18
- How are God’s compassionate ways not like our compassionate ways? How does it affect your heart to see how His compassion is not what we expect?
- What does it mean that “the intensity of love maps onto the intensity of misery in the one beloved” (p. 168)?
- How does the cross resolve the tension between divine justice and divine mercy?
- What does it mean to you to be God’s “darling child”?
