Preparation For Tomorrow’s Sunday School

If you are wondering what we will be going over tomorrow morning in the High School Class, look no further.  We will be starting a study on parables, and looking first at Luke 18:9-14.

9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Hopefully, tomorrow your son or daughter (or both) will be able to answer the following questions:

What is a parable?

What does it mean to be justified?

Why is the Pharisee standing “by himself” ?

What does it mean to be righteous?

What is the main theme of the parable?

What is one thing you can apply to your life right away from this text?

These are just a few questions we will be going over.  I hope this helps in the continual building up of communication between you and your children.  I will be putting up all of my questions tomorrow afternoon, just in case you want them.
