Caring for the Vineyard | Feb. 26, 2017

Getting Started

  • Describe tenant/owner relationships that we are aware of in our culture.
  • What are some ways that people abuse these types of relationships?

Community Discussion

  • The "vineyard" is the place and people God has put around us to cultivate for His Kingdom. As a community how have we identified an area or a people group as the vineyard God has placed us in to defend, develop and deliver?
  • In what ways has our community been unfaithful to defend, develop, and deliver the "vineyard" to produce fruit for the Kingdom? What are some areas of defending, developing, and delivering the "vineyard" that we have been faithful to as a community?
  • How does our understanding of the "vineyard" belonging to God shape the way we interact with one another in community? How does this understanding affect the way we interact with our neighbors?

Further Discussion

Discipleship

  • The "vineyard" is the place and people God has put around us to cultivate for His Kingdom. How have you identified an area or a people group as the vineyard God has placed you in to defend, develop, and deliver? What is the "vineyard" God has placed you in to defend, develop, and deliver?
  • How have you failed to cultivate the "vineyard" God has placed you in? In what ways have you failed to develop the people and places around you for the advancement of God's Kingdom? What hinders you from defending, developing, and delivering for the Kingdom of God?

Family

  • The "vineyard" is the place and people God has put around you to cultivate for His Kingdom. How have you as a family identified an area or a people group as the "vineyard" God has placed you in to defend, develop, and deliver?
  • In what ways has your family been unfaithful to defend, develop, and deliver the "vineyard" to produce fruit for the Kingdom? What are some areas of defending, developing, and delivering the "vineyard" that you have been faithful to as a family?
