Key Scripture (Luke 12:16, 21): “And he told them this parable ... This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”
Introduction: Jesus liked to tell stories to teach spiritual truths about the Kingdom. But, these are not cute children’s tales. Rather, Jesus pictures the Kingdom in ways which demand a response from the hearer. When Jesus story’s the Gospel, pay attention to what He wants for and from His followers.
Hear the Story - listen to the point of view: Questioner; Jesus; rich man
Picture the Kingdom - How is the Kingdom pictured?
Get the Point - What does it look like to be rich toward God?
· Your soul’s worth greater than anything you can compare!
· Greed (idolizing stuff) kills your soul by choking off relationships.
· Your relationship with God is the point!
· God’s grace to you will lead to extending grace to others.
Respond to Jesus - How will you respond to God’s demand on your soul?
How will you strategically steward your resources for Kingdom purposes?
