HOLES

I found an interesting picture from the Australian outback

and it reminded me of the experience of a cyclist friend who didn’t see one in the road surface in front of him

We should beware of holes

Can you place two Bible stories about holes?

One in OT and one in NT

Joshua 7            Achan had one in his tent

Matthew 25        Jesus told a parable about someone who buried the talent there

ACHAN

The hole in the ground that marked his sin

Caused the defeat at AI

-         temptation

-         guilt

-         judgement

It’s a harsh story.

Beware of holes

MATTHEW 25

The talents

BURIED OPPORTUNITES

We watch servant #3 go off with a spade

Dug a hole and hid it

What made him do it?

A small view of himself

A poor view of his master

A poor understanding of duty

A fear of failure

He is described as wicked and lazy!!

Beware of holes
