[Beyond Sunday] Finding Focus

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy, he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls;  on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.

-Matthew 13:44-46

This week we talked about the parable of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl of Great Price. These are stories of discoveries that disrupt normal daily life and priorities; they
require risk and sacrifice. [hear sermon audio]

This week, take some time to go deeper.  Set aside some time to reflect and discern where your top priorities lie.

Texts to read:

  • Matthew 6: 19-21

Questions to ponder:

  • What takes up most of your waking time during the week?
  • What do you think about first thing in the morning?  Last in the evening?
  • How would your life change if you made God a higher priority?

Do and share:

  • Go through your weekly calendar.  If you have free time, reflect on how are you spending it.  Make a plan to offer 1 extra hour to God.
  • Go through your weekly budget.  If you have discretionary money, reflect on how are you spending it. Make a plan to offer an extra $7 dollars to God.
  • Take a picture during your devotion time and share it to our Facebook with the #jesusstory
