Week 19 Discussion Notes:1
- In Chapter 5, Kempis wrote about God’s love. Is it correct to say that love is so closely related to God, that love carries, by its nature, a bit of Godliness? (Day 128)
- Has the love you have experienced in this life been what Kempis described: “nothing stronger or higher or wider; nothing is more pleasant, nothing fuller, and nothing better in heaven or on earth?” (Day 128)
- The Little Kempis says, “Do you wish to have the love of God, and peace with the your Christian brothers and sister?” How does the peace you have with other Christians relate to your love of God? (Day 130)
- In chapter 6, Kempis wrote that we ought to stand with those we love in good times and in bad times. Is this advice a bit dated — or does it still apply? (Day 131)
