Discipleship Guide & Reflection Questions

Launching Questions

  • Reread the text from Sunday (Luke 8:4-15). What do you remember most from the teaching on Sunday?
  • Can you think of a parable that has held particular meaning for you in your walk of faith? Explain why that parable stays with you.


  • On Sunday, we said that the parables give us lenses for seeing and understanding the countercultural, upside-down nature of the kingdom of God. If someone were to ask you how the Kingdom of God is different from the world, how might you respond?


  • Which of the soils do you most resonate with in terms of how you receive the activity and instruction of God? Be specific and honest in your response.
  • Pray specifically for one another that you would embody the description of the “good soil” in v. 15.
