Title: Inheritance, III
Text: Joshua 17-19
Fairness and achievement mark our struggle with identity. How do we grow?
I. How God Gives Out The Land
Unequal portions by lot
II. Why We Struggle With His Gifts
Zero Sum, Reward, Comparison, Coveting, Pride
III. What Calms Our Hearts
“For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:17)
• Is God fair? If you think he is, what does he base blessings on?
• Why do we struggle with comparing ourselves to others so much?
• What’s wrong with seeing your identity in success or achievement?
• How does the gospel answer our problem with inequality?
