Jesus’ parables
new insights to faithfulness
living lives of love

Summary:
With four puzzling parables, Jesus calls us to reimagine what it means to be God’s faithful people. Pastor Dave reflects on how campers are stirred to faithfulness at Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp, and how we can be too.

Some discussion Questions:
1. As Lutherans we are fond both of what is old and what is new — how is this helpful for my faith?
2. When have I noticed the kind of faithfulness, righteousness or uprightness of heart toward God in someone that Solomon mentions in 1 Kings 3:5-12?
3. According to Romans 8:28, what does it mean that all things (even bad things) work together for good for those who love God?
