Ken’s Main Points
- The Shocking Change
- Your Own Little Kingdom
- The Humbled King; The Humble King
- Ken referred to this final story of Nebuchadnezzar as a story of kings and kingdoms (not a King and a Kingdom) at war. Spend some discussing what he meant by that and how it is applicable to you?
- What comes to mind when you think of the Kingdom of God? Have your thoughts changed at all?
- When you look at Nebuchadnezzar, do you see yourself? If so, in what ways?
- What thoughts come to your mind when you think of Bin Ladin, Assad or the boss who fired you for no reason? How do the categories of compassion, truthfulness and hope fit into the way you think about and interact with them?
- Does the distinction between dominion (given authority) and rebellious kingship (assumed authority) help? What difference does it make in the little and big details of your life?
- What are some of the ‘kingdoms’ that are warring in your heart? What would your spouse or kids say if this question was asked of them about you?
- Spend some time reflecting on Philippians 2:5-11, the Great Parabola of Scripture.
