Kingdom Come

Week 11

Scripture to Read

Matthew 24:36
Matthew 25:14-30
Luke 12:48

Opening

What’s a time (at work, with a family member of friend) when you were entrusted with much, maybe even a little more than you thought you could handle? How did the situation play out?

Diving Deeper
  1. Why do you think humans are so fascinated with the end times?
  2. Why do we try to predict when the world will end when the Bible specifically tells us we’ll never know?
  3. Notice how the master in the parable entrusted his servants with his wealth. Examine this principle in your life: does God trust you more than you do? Why or why not?
  4. What do you think your life needs to look like for God to call you a “good and faithful servant”?
  5. What talents has God given you that you’re using to enhance His kingdom? Are there any talents you have that you’re not using for His purposes?
  6. In what ways do you compare the resources and talent He’s given you versus what He’s given others? Why is this a dangerous practice?
  7. In Luke 12:48, Jesus says, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” What does this verse mean to you? How does it impact your life?
  8. The third servant buried his money because he was afraid of his master, whom he regarded as a “hard man.” Do you see God as a “hard man”? Why or why not? Is there a way to reshape your thinking?
  9. The final sentence of Matthew 25:23 is, “Come and share in your master’s happiness.” What does that look like to you? How can it inspire how you live out this week?
