Parables should always be READ with TWO QUESTIONS in mind…
Where am I in the STORY?
Where is GOD in the STORY?
Parables are meant to have ONE POINT
Winning is not about how much you have but about what you do with what you have
Matthew 25:14-37 HCSB
What are you DOING with what you’ve been GIVEN?
What STORY does your BANK statement tell?
Why do you DESIRE more than what you HAVE?
What emotion best describes your DISOBEDIENCE; ANGER, SELFISHNESS, or FEAR?
Acts 4:32-37 HCSB
Show us ways to be generous towards Kingdom causes and help us to live with open hands
