The Power of Good Questions
Rich: Investing According to Jesus (Week 4)
Summary: There’s a story in three of the Gospels about a rich young man who comes to Jesus with a question: “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” In Matthew’s account, this is the first of 6 questions in 11 verses. Questions are important — the questions we ask ourselves and the questions we ask others. So, what do the questions in this account — two in particular — have to say about money’s place in our lives and our relationship to God?
Scriptures: Matthew 19:16-26
Series Description: Jesus has a lot to say about money and about what it means to be “rich” — or better yet, he tells us toward whom we should be rich. (Spoiler Alert: It’s God.) Jesus seems to talk about money in terms of investing, encouraging us to "lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” So what if we asked ourselves a simple question: What am I investing in?
