Sermon Outline:

1. Setting of the Parable

2. God and Wealth

3. The Rich Man

4. Lazarus

5. What the Rich Man is Missing

6. What We Could Miss

1. Think of someone you may have overlooked.

2. Pray for that person.

3. If appropriate, reach out to that person.

1. This weekend's parable depicts a strong contrast between the rich man's lifestyle and the poverty of Lazarus. How might this speak to issues of justice and the responsibility of the wealthy towards those who are impoverished?

2. What does this weekend's parable suggest about the consequences of how we live our lives, particularly in relation to our treatment of others?

3. What implications does this weekend's parable have for our lives in terms of how we prioritize our resources, treat others, and rehearse for eternity?

4. The parable ends with Abraham rejecting the rich man's plea, stating that if people do not listen to Moses and the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead. What did the prophets say about how the poor should be treated?

5. What was the rich man missing? How did he overlook Lazarus?

6. How can we avoid making the same mistakes as the rich man?

7. Why do you think Jesus told this parable?
