Lazarus and the Rich Man

Scripture Passage: Luke 16:19-25

This is the story of two different people. The first is a rich man who wore expensive clothes and feasted in luxury every day. Outside the gate lay a beggar called Lazarus who waited for the crumbs from the rich man's table. The beggar was covered with open sores and helpless. Then Lazarus dies and is taken to Heaven. The rich man dies and is in hell. The rich man had never been cruel to Lazarus; he simply had never noticed him lying in pain and hungry. May we always show compassion and kindness to those less fortunate than us, just like the way Jesus did.

1. Who was Lazarus?
He was a beggar
2. Who went to hell?
The rich man
3. What must we show to everyone?
Like Jesus, we must show compassion

Memory verse: Colossians. 3:12
Since God chose you to be the holy people whom he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. (NLT)
