For Connect Groups using your talk, what 3 questions would you want them to discuss?”

Are you more like the younger brother? How? Or maybe God is challenging you on the elder bother..

Are there people you find hard to forgive? Do you think others are more underserving than you of God's love and compassion? Maybe you are stuck in outward appearances of self-righteousness, religiosity and more concerned with what others think of you than what is going on inside of you?
