These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.

Bible Study Guide:

Easy to be Entreated

By Scarlett Stough


To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, Reasonable.

1. James 3:17 What is the primary action a person must take in order “to yield to reason?”

2. I Samuel 25 Abigail was humble and diplomatic when she approached David which made it easier for him to yield to her plea. Should we as Christians be willing to receive correction from someone who is not as skillful as Abigail? Explain.

3. Exodus 32:1-14 Why do you think God was willing to change his mind? Can you think of any personal circumstances in which you have, or could have, changed your mind toward someone even when you were right? Can you relate any experience when someone showed you this kind of mercy?

4. James 1:19-22 How can obeying this exhortation help us learn to be “easy to be entreated?”

5. Read the following proverbs. How does each one teach us to apply godly wisdom? Summarize in a sentence or a paragraph how the principles in these passages enable us to “yield to reason” yet hold on to the truth revealed by God?
