Discussion Questions:

When we act unwisely, we often respond, “I’m only human.” What does this reveal about what we functionally believe?

The Teacher values wisdom here as it guides our interactions with earthly authorities. How does Jesus model this? How might you, too, apply wisdom to your interactions with earthly authorities?

How have you experienced the limitations of wisdom? How might experiencing these limitations impact your relationship with God and others?
