Theme: Discovering Wisdom/ Jesus Talks About God’s Kingdom
1. Name some things that you’ve learned about God because you read the Bible.
2. In Matthew 13:1-23, Jesus taught the Parable of Sower. He then explains it to his disciples. He compared the message of the kingdom to a seed. .As you listen to this episode, think about when we read the Word of God, how that is like a seed growing in the soil.
“ Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
A: They fell on rocky ground but didn’t have deep roots, so they withered and died.
A: They fell among thorns and got choked out and never produced anything.
Think about how you learn about God and his kingdom when you read the Bible. In Jesus’ Parable of the Sower, we learn that listening to God’s Word is not enough. Bible readers have to do the work and understand scripture and make it a part of our lives. Bible readers need to have deep roots. We might get deep roots when we study the Bible every day and do devotions. We also learn that we can’t let our worries and wants about life take over our lives. God’s Word and his work needs to be first. When we learn about God and our role in his story, not only do we grow but so does God’s kingdom.
