Questions: The Story Of A Man And His Shovel

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Micro Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Micro Group, feel free to use them on your own.

This week we began a new series $toryteller and talked about "The Story Of A Man And His Shovel." If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. When you hear the word "trust" what comes to mind?
  2. Read Matthew 25:14-22
  3. In what way(s) does the master trust the servants?
  4. In what way(s) is the servant’s issue one of trust?
  5. In the Bible, God says that everything we have comes from Him and actually belongs to Him. If that’s true, in what way is He trusting us?
  6. God asks us throughout the Bible to give back to Him ten percent of all the money we bring in. When people struggle with doing that in what way do you think trust is the issue?
  7. The Bible tells us that one of the reasons God wants us to tithe is because it helps us set our priorities. In what way would giving the first ten percent of your income back to God help you to make Him your top priority?
  8. We also learn in the Bible that when we tithe it draws our hearts closer to God.  In what way would giving more of your income back to God help grow your love for Him?
  9. Accountability Question: How have you allowed God to show you where you can generously invest your time, talent, and treasure into His Kingdom?
  10. Prayer Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is this there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
