Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Gospel Passage
Luke 18:1 And he told them a parable, to the effect that they ought always
to pray and not lose heart. 2 He said, "In a certain city there was a judge
who neither feared God nor regarded man; 3 and there was a widow in that
city who kept coming to him and saying, `Vindicate me against my
adversary.' 4 For a while he refused; but afterward he said to himself,
`Though I neither fear God nor regard man, 5 yet because this widow
bothers me, I will vindicate her, or she will wear me out by her continual
coming.'" 6 And the Lord said, "Hear what the unrighteous judge says. 7
And will not God vindicate his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he
delay long over them? 8 I tell you, he will vindicate them speedily.
Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, will he find faith on earth?"

Questions for discussion -

1. The woman in the story never gave up asking for help. Jesus says to pray and
never give up. Would Jesus think you are doing a good job praying, or do you
give up when you pray?

2. Jesus wonders whether, when he returns, he will find faith on earth. What
does this mean, “when he returns”? When is he coming again? What will he do

3. Jesus wonders whether he will find faith on earth. What do you think you
can do at least to ensure that he will find faith in you?
