J2:Session 7

Coach GuideJ2:Session 7

Purpose/Objective

Help participants see that when it comes to living a life of impact, it’s more about their investment than their environment; and the Bible has a lot to say about investment.

How It Works

BIG IDEA Most people are asking God to change their environment when God is asking them to change their investment.

  • Communicate that this is the second emphasis of the LifeSteps portion of the Vision Frame
  • Read the passage from Matthew 25:14-30.
  • Exegete text and land the three things that keep us from investing:
    • Insecurity: We undervalue what we have been given.
    • Fear: We overvalue what we could lose.
    • Deception: We misvalue who God is.
  • Optional Reflections: Highlight a few disturbing realities in this passage:
    • People get different amounts – the justice is in what is given but in the reward.
    • The guy who plays it safe is the Villain in this parable. Jesus eliminates neutral ground.
    • Greatest danger in the kingdom is NOT people who fail but who do nothing.
  • Explain the 5 Capitals and define their Currencies.
    • The listed order of Capitals on the worksheet is intentional as it reflects kingdom principles. Reverse the order and you will see the priorities of our culture/world.

Purpose/Objective

Help participants analyze, evaluate and reflect on their current resources and to bring greater alignment between their resources and their calling.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: What resources have you been given today that can be invested for tomorrow’s purpose? Recognize some of those resources may be in seed form.

  • Give participants 17 hypothetical gold bars to list in their inventory worksheet, demonstrating the disbursement of their current capital, assessing where they have more and less capital in their lives. (5 minutes to do this)
  • Have participants assume they are all “Good Servants”, meaning they will double their investments in the next 3 years. Now they have 34 bars. Where would they place them to best resource the LifeCall they identified in Journey 1?
  • Have participants identify where the biggest gaps are located. 
  • Have participants finish the worksheet where they identify the capital they need to increase the most, as well as the investment that needs to be made to increase it.

Purpose/Objective

Help participants hone in on their own investment strategy for the future not only in reflecting and sharing, but in actively listening to the strategies of others.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Opportunity for three-way listening: to honor God, to honor each other and to learn more about ourselves.

  • Have each participant share their reflections from the gold bars exercise, sharing their biggest gaps, how they might want to bridge that gap and what possible strategies they can concentrate on going forward.
