putting gifts to work
entering the master’s joy
living the Christ-life

Summary:
All that we are and all that we have comes from God. It is pure gift. Gifts God gives with joy. As we put these gifts to work, how do we do so in a way that allows us to enter into our Master’s joy?

Some discussion Questions:
1. How have I put my talents — my gifts and abilities — to work for those things that matter to God?
2. How must these words from Zephaniah 1:7, 12-18 have struck the leaders of Israel? How do they strike me?
3. Considering 1st Thessalonians 5:1-11, in our family or in our church, how might we encourage one another and build each other up?
