How did you do in obeying the word since the last session?

Word #10 actually contains two separate verbs: do not desire your neighbor’s wife, and do not crave anything that belongs to your neighbor. How is this word different from the others?

What kind of situations are envisioned in Deuteronomy 26:1-15? How often will these events take place?

What specific types of things are to be included in the two liturgies of Deuteronomy 26 (verses 5-10 and verses 13-15)?

Why do you think Yahweh asked the people to recite these “little liturgies” as they made their offerings? What good would it do to recite something in Yahweh’s presence?

Are there any areas within our own culture where we have adopted “little liturgies” of sorts to help remind us of what’s important?

The people hold on to their first-fruit and tithe until they bring them to Yahweh. Can you relate to how this might create a temptation for them to “crave” some of Yahweh’s portion?

Have you ever struggled to give to the Lord when perhaps you don’t feel like you have enough?

What liturgies could you adopt to help you in moments when you “desire” or “crave” things that don’t belong to you?

What is one specific way you can obey this word this week?
