Wise or foolish.

Series: The Gospel of Luke: Strengthened in Spirit | Week 5: Storm Proof

Read Matthew 7:21-27 and Luke 6:46-49

1. Compare and contrast Matthew’s telling of Jesus’ teaching with Luke’s.
2. Who, in your own words, does Jesus say enters the kingdom of heaven and who doesn’t (verses 21-23)?
3. What makes someone wise and what makes someone foolish (verses 24-27)?

As we conclude our week, take some time to reflect. Jesus gives us a warning that should cause us to truly examine our hearts and actions. Take some time to ask God what next step He might be asking you to take. Tell a trusted friend or group member what it is and when you’re going to take it.

As you end the week, make a commitment to continue to check in with your family on how they are doing spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Ask God to make you more aware when your family is struggling and to give you the wisdom to encourage them in their next steps.
