Parable of the Whiny Workers

It's our natural response to complain when we don't think things are fair or we don't get what we want. But what does Jesus say? He wants us to understand that God Loves and cares for us. and we all have SO much to be thankful for, no matter what everyone else has or how disappointed we might feel.

Parable of the Roadside Rescue
Luke 10 25-37

Indifference means that it doesn't matter to you what happens. You don't care either way. Sometimes we look at people that way. But what does Jesus say? He wants us to look at hurting people and show them God's love and mercy. He wants us to get involved and make a difference like he does.

Parable of the Shocking Servant
Matthew 18:21-35

It's natural for us to get angry when someone hurts or disappoints us. And it's very easy to hold onto that anger and carry a grudge. But what does Jesus say?

Parable of the Warmest Welcome
Luke 15:11-32

Punishment means that when you do something wrong, you pay the price for your mistake. It's the way the world usually works, and actually its fair. And because we've all done some thing wrong, we all deserve punishment. But what does Jesus say? Jesus wants us to know that God loves us so much that instead of giving us the punishment we deserve. He gave us a gift! He gave us Jesus! And He gives us a forever party with Him in Heaven. All we have to do is come to Him and accept that gift.

Parable of the Master's Money
Luke 19:12-26

Selfishness means that you're thinking about yourself. And when we don't do something good it's usually because we're thinking about ourselves and what we want. But what does Jesus say? He wants us to understand that He gives us all the wonderful things in our life for a reason. That good gifts we have are meant to be shared with others and used in ways that honor God.
