‘These things were written down to warn us …’

I don’t want you to forget, dear brothers and sisters, what happened to our ancestors in the wilderness long ago. … God was not pleased with most of them, and he destroyed them in the wilderness. These events happened as a warning to us, so that we would not crave evil things as they did, or worship idols as some of them did, [or] engage in sexual immorality as some of them did, … nor should we put Christ to the test, as some of them did, … and don’t grumble as some of them did, for that is why God sent his angel of death to destroy them. 

All these events happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us. …. If you think you are standing strong, be careful, for you, too, may fall into the same sin. (1 Corinthians 10:1-12 NLT)

— What evil things do you crave?

— What idol takes a place in your life that rightfully belongs to God?

— How has God’s plan for sexuality been degraded in your life?

— In what ways do you put Christ to the test?

— What are you grumbling about today?
