Feel the tension that means this world is not your home.
I. Tension over Time (3:1-15)
A view of our helplessness
“Time is a river that takes everything it gives us… the myth of progress is like believing you are climbing a mountain just because you are going up an anthill on the way down.” (Peter Kreeft, Three Philosophies of Life)
II. Tension over Justice (3:16-4:3)
A view of our ignorance
19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” (Romans 12:19)
“For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:3)

· What does it mean that you cannot control events or change seasons?
· How do people have advantage over other animals? How do we know?
· How do you explain or think about injustice and oppression on earth?
