As we continue our focus on Giving as a spiritual discipline and particularly at how our attitudes towards wealth and material possessions shape us spiritually, this week we turn our attention to Jesus’ parable of the rich “barn-builder.” When he accumulated more than his barns could store, his solution was simple: build a bigger barn. Jesus’ response and his teaching here speaks volumes to today’s society and our over-indulgence of “stuff.”
This week in your groups we encourage you to discuss Jesus’ teaching here and how it out to shape our attitudes in the church today. We are also leaving you a practice as a suggestion as to how you might implement these principles into your life today. Check it out!
