Aha Moments – Week 8

The Rich Man and Lazarus: As we’ve seen throughout our parables series so far, these aren’t stories that only tell us more about the nature of our God. They primarily serve to help us check our own hearts. The story of the Rich Man and Lazarus from Luke 16 is another one of those stories. At first glance it may look like it gives us insight into the nature of heaven and hell, but as we dig deeper today, we start to find that it is actually meant to rebuke the rich, religiously self-righteous among us.
