    This week’s Table Topic comes from Luke 15:11-32.

    All I Have is Yours

    The Parable of the Prodigal Son is one of the most important teachings in all the Bible. It has enormous implications for our lives. Together, all three characters experience something different around the table, and we need to hear about and from all three.

    DINNER GROUP QUESTIONS:

    • What is your birth order in your family?  Are you the youngest?  The oldest?  Middle?  Only?  What is the best part and the worst part about occupying that place in the family?
    • How do rivalries or jealousies play into sibling relationships?
    • The father says, “All I have is yours,” yet the younger son grabs for what is ‘his’ and takes off.  In what ways do we do that?
    • The father says, “All I have is yours,” yet the elder son resents what is given to his brother.  In what ways do we do that?
    • What truth about God do you think Jesus wanted them to know when they got up from the table that day?
    • Where in your life might this truth come into play?
