M Matt 21.1-17: Jesus needed to use another’s donkey for God’s purposes; what can you make available for Jesus to extend his ministry?
T Matt 21.18-32: Jesus puts practical action ahead of empty words (28-29); how can you put your faith into practice more fully this year?
W Matt 21.33-end: Jesus isn’t always what we want or expect; when do you try to silence or eliminate his unwanted presence in your life?
T Matt 22.1-14: a king who resorts to violence (7) & a guest who refuses to conform (11); which one of these is the real picture of God?
F Matt 22.15-33: what is Jesus’ point here: a separation of church & state or a conviction that God can work in any & every social reality?
S Matt 22.34-end: Jesus’ answer is not new but remains perpetually challenging (37-40); how will you love God & others in the Jesus way?
