Passage: Matthew 25:1-13

Worship Folder

Outline

I. THE DELAYED BRIDEGROOM

 

II. THE FOOLISH BRIDESMAIDS

 

III. THE WISE BRIDESMAIDS

 

Discussion Questions

  1. Share a time when you were unprepared for something. How did that go?
  2. Discuss what it’s like to prepare for something. How soon do you start beforehand? How does getting ready reveal what we value?
  3. What are some of the things that cause you to say, 'Yes Jesus I want you to return, but not before this, not before I experience that.' What does this reveal to you about your priorities? What does it reveal to you about what you believe eternity will be like? 
  4. In this parable the groom is “delayed” in arriving. How does that help us wait for Jesus’ return?
  5. It was only “those who were ready” that “went in with him to the marriage feast” (Matt. 25:10). In what ways would your life change if you were to live with a greater sense of “readiness” for Jesus’ return?
