Matthew Week 4: Day 2
Pray and read
Ask God to give you a soft heart, that as you read his word you will understand it, and respond to it with repentance and faith. Read Matthew 25:14-30.
Having read the parable for a second time, these questions will help you dig a bit deeper.
What do the servants do with the gold entrusted to them by their master? What is the attitude underlying the third servant’s action?
How does the master respond to each of the servants when he returns? What do you make of his response to the third servant?
What’s the problem with the attitude of the third servant? What is it that the master wanted from him?
What would it look like to have an attitude toward the Lord Jesus like that of the third servant? When are you tempted to think of Jesus in this way?
What would it look like to have the attitude of the first and second servants? How can you cultivate this kind of attitude toward the Lord Jesus?
Ask God to give you a heart which delights in serving the Lord Jesus.
