Passage: Jeremiah 35

1.  Why do you think the Rechabites stayed obedient to Jonadab’s command even several generations and centuries later?

2.  Compare the separation achieved by the Rechabites with how effectively the church is separating itself from the world today.  Are we doing enough, or do we tend to compromise?  If so, why?

3. Discuss why Israel refused to heed God’s commands and how they are similar/different from our excuses today.

4.  God frequently uses examples (both positive and negative) to teach us important lessons.  Share a lesson you learned from an example in Scripture that has stuck with you.

5.  Application:  How can we be more like Jonadab, for our children’s sakes?
