The Parable of the Rich Fool | The Book Of Luke Week 1 - Live Service

More money, more stuff, more status, it’s been the focus of humans for centuries. Jesus knew this, and when he was asked about it he replied with a story. Jesus told parables like this to help us understand the bigger picture, and that’s what we’re going to look at today.

Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...

Welcome to the Weekend-Follow Up This is the group part of the Bible Challenge, so your questions are based on specific Bible passages from the weekend message. Each week, your group will discover what God might be saying to you, and how you can respond through a group discussion.

  1. Who’s the greediest fictional character?

    • Mr. Krabs (Spongebob)
    • Ebenezer Scrooge (A Christmas Carol)
    • Walter White (Breaking Bad)
    • Smaug (The Hobbit)
  2. What stood out to you most from the message?

  3. Why did that stand out to you most? What do you think God might be trying to say? (It’s ok if you’re just guessing. This will give you some space to process what it might be.)

  4. How does consumerism or greed impact your life or the lives of people around you?

  5. Read Luke 12:16-21. What aspects of the Kingdom do you think the rich man missed?

  6. In what ways can you relate to the rich man?

  7. What is one way you can respond to what God might be saying to you this week?

  8. Now share a prayer request for the week. Whoever loves taking notes can jot them down (and maybe put them in a group chat). Make sure to go around the circle and pray for each other at the end of your meeting, and throughout the week.
