Connection Group Homework:
Looking back at your notes, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged, or confused you?

Up to this point in your life, what have you had to work the hardest at waiting for? (Think: engagement, degree, promotion, children, etc.) How did you handle, or how are you handling, the waiting process?

What role does waiting play in your relationship with God?

How do you feel about the five prepared virgins not sharing their oil with the foolish virgins (vv. 7-9)? Were they being selfish?

What warning was Jesus giving us in verse 13 about when He will come and what we need to do?

What does “watching” for the return of Jesus practically mean in our everyday life?

Read Matthew 25:10-13: What is your response to the fact that the five unprepared virgins were not allowed into the banquet? What do you think about the implication that there is a limit to God’s open door of grace?

If you knew that Jesus was returning in a very short period of time, how would you live your life differently? What things would you stop stressing over, and what things would you make a priority?
