Acts 3:1–5 – "With Our Eyes" – Kerry Kaino
1. Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer (verse 1). What do you think this says about Peter and John?
2. When the lame man saw Peter and John, he asked them for money (verse 3). Do you think they saw this as an interruption? What kinds of things interrupt us in the course of our days? What is the range of our reactions to those interruptions?
3. Put yourself into this Biblical scene, as if you are a bystander watching these events unfold before your eyes. What do you see? What catches your attention? What significance do you attach to what you see?
4. We surely can’t respond to everything that we see. What are some things that can help guide us? Which statement is more indicative of your response tendencies … “My eyes are too big for my stomach” or “I can’t do everything, but I have to do something, and I have to do it now” or “Tomorrow. Yes. Tomorrow”?
