“Letting Go – Fasting from Discontent” – Week 4, John 12:1-6, Pastor Doug Walker

Play
  1. What is the context of this passage? Where are they and who are the people mentioned? (See Luke 10:38-42 and John 11:1-44 for help)

  2. Take a moment to read about this same story in Matthew 26 and Mark 14. What additional details do you notice?

  3. This story contrasts the extravagance of Mary and the miserly nature of Judas. What do you think motivates each behavior?

  4. Imagine a line with extravagance at one end and miserly at the other. Where would you fall on the spectrum? Why?

  5. Judas suffered from “never enough” syndrome. In particular, he was discontent with how much money he had, but he likely felt this way about a lot of things. What do you think those things were? What are they in your life?

  6. This week’s fast is from discontentment. How can we keep discontentment from occupying space in our brains and hearts? How do we stop dreaming of more and be satisfied with what we have?
