1. When you were younger, which of the following games did you enjoy most? Why?
• hide and seek
• truth or dare
• tag, you’re it!
2. Why did Adam and Eve hide from God? When confronted with their disobedience, why did Adam and Eve make excuses?
3. When we do wrong we tend to hide from those we’ve wronged and make excuses. How can we correct such character flaws and avoid them in the future?
4. The Lord made provisions for Adam and Eve’s sin through animal sacrifice (garments of animal skin). Their animal skin clothes were a reminder of God’s sin covering. We still live in a fallen world and the Lord has made provision for our sin through Jesus’ sacrifice. How has Jesus’ covering of your sin been real to you recently?
5. Pray for one another to persevere in this fallen world and follow Jesus wholeheartedly and transparently without hiding or making excuses.
