Discussion Questions: Luke 8:16-21

  • Think about the parable of the sower, the soils, and the seed in Luke 8:4-15. Think also of the metaphor of light found in Luke 8:16. Both passages are about hearing or receiving God’s word in a good way. What have you learned from these passages regarding the good reception of God’s word?  
  • What is meditation? What is the Christian to meditate upon? Why is it important to not only read and listen to God’s word but to also meditate upon it?
  • What is the meaning of Luke 8:18? “Take care then how you hear, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away” (Luke 8:18, ESV). Why is it dangerous to hear or receive God’s word in a bad way?
  • What does it mean to “do” the word (see Luke 8:21; James 1:21)? It is only those who do the word who receive it truly. Discuss.
