Title: “Understanding Disease”

Text:  Lev. 26:15-16; 1 Cor. 11:30; Jn. 9:1-4; Jam. 5:14; 1 Tim. 5:23;  2 Tim. 4:20

In a Nutshell: While all disease can be traced back to at least Adam’s sin, some is for God’s glory, some will be healed, some must be tolerated, and all should be prayed for. But the first place we look to is sin,  then we look to God for hope and maybe even healing.

Questions:  Why do you think Jesus’ disciples assumed the blind man or his parents had sinned?   Jn, 9:1-4  What kinds of sicknesses can be tied directly to specific sins?   Read through 1 Timothy and make note of any teachings of Paul that if ignored could lead to a sickness or disease. What are some specific ways the Bible challenges people to react to illness? Jam. 5:14; 1 Tim. 5:23;  2 Tim. 4:20; 1 Cor. 11:30

 Parents with your Children:  Make a list of types of sicknesses with which your children are familiar.  Are there common causes for the sicknesses? How about working on a Medical Family Tree?
