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 - 1st Sunday of Advent

Gospel Passage
Matt. 24:37 As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of
man. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark,
39 and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so
will be the coming of the Son of man. 40 Then two men will be in the field;
one is taken and one is left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one
is taken and one is left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know on what
day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the householder had
known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have
watched and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you
also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not

Questions for discussion -

1. What happened in the days of Noah? Were many people caught off guard?
What should we learn from this?

2. Jesus says we do not know the hour that God will come and that we should be
ready. How can we get ready to meet Him?

3. Jesus says that we should “watch.” For whom should we watch this Advent?
