Investments That Give Life

Have you ever been standing in a place where something significant has happened and wondered, “Who were those nameless, behind the scenes people who contributed their time, talents and resources to make this happen?” Every major event or movement has a flag bearer, someone who you automatically associate it, but who are those people, who, without their contributions, none of this would have happened? Could you be one of them?

Questions for discussion: 

  • What do you think was the main point of Pete’s message?
  • Who are some behind the scenes people who have invested in your life? 
  • Does you investment of time, talents and resources give you life? If not, why not? 
  • Does the investment of your time, talents and resources give others life? If yes, how so? 

Do something about it:

Deep down we all want to make a difference. We all of have time, talents and resources to give. The problem, sometimes, is that not all of our investments “give life” (to us and to those we are investing in). The key to making your investment “give life” is by investing in people. Think about the three areas mentioned above and discern which of these areas, that, if you were to “give more”, would make a significant impact on your life and the lives of those you are investing in.

Digging deeper:

Acts 4:36,37; 9:27; 11:26,27; 15:36-39; John 10:10; Hebrews 10:24,25; Proverbs 11:24; 18:16; Luke 6:38
