Share a high and a low from your week.
This can be a short story or comment, or a longer story with more conversation. If you are just starting out, don't press the conversation if it feels awkward. Let the conversation come to you as you move through the questions!
Matthew 25:14-30 NIV
The Parable of the Talents
Why is it sometimes easier to blame God for what you don't have than trust God with what you do have?
What do you think Jesus was trying to teach the crowd through The Story of The Talents?
Find a phrase you can say to remind yourself of the way God sees you. Write that phrase down:
My God loves me, so I can love me.
I'm a loved son/daughter of God.
God defines me. People don't.
I'm an accepted child of God.
God says I have what it takes.
Thank you for the gifts you have given me. Thank you for the gifts you have given others. Be with us this week as we celebrate the many blessings in our lives and the lives of others. Help us to use these gifts to glorify you. Amen.
The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.
