Introducing Have You Got Mustard? A Study Guide for Growing Faith

A Bible Study Guide for Growing Faith
Have You Got Mustard

Back in January, I was inspired to develop a Bible Study.  It took me a few weeks to get it done.  It was first published on March 5, 2014.    This guide is called:  Have You Got Mustard?  A  Bible Study Guide for Growing Faith and is available on Amazon Kindle as of April 16, 2016.  The study is based on the parables related to growing faith from a small mustard seed into something larger and stronger (Matthew 13:31-32, Matthew 17:20, Mark 4:31-32,  Luke 13:19, Luke 17:6).  

M-U-S-T-A-R-D is used as an acronym that represents the seven actions each person should take to increase their personal faith.  The seven actions are:  Move, Unite, Seek, Trust, Act, Repeat, and Deploy.  For each action, weekly study programs containing five scriptures are presented. At the end of the program, readers are given a planning form to decide what they should do next.

Potential audiences for this study guide include:
  • Individuals who want a personal study program.  It may be completed in about a week if a chapter per day is covered.  Or use it as a daily devotional by concentrating on a different daily scripture reading from each chapter, then the program may run seven or eight weeks.  See “Study Methods” section for details.
  • Home or Church study groups can use it in various teaching formats such as weekly meetings or a retreat.  Discussion questions are included at the end of each lesson for   M-U-S-T-A-R-D.  Group facilitator instructions are included in the “Study Methods” section of the guide.  Also group facilitators can find Have You got Mustard? PowerPoint slideshow available on SlideShare.net.  If facilitators would like a flyer to discuss doing the study with a group or for promotional purposes in planning, check ShirleyFineLee.com to download.  Print study group and meeting details on the back of this flyer if using it to promote the start of a group study.  
If you want to download a PDF of printable worksheets to accompany the guide for free, go to goodreads.com. Please be sure to go back into GoodReads or Amazon to post a rating and review when you complete the study.  Thanks!
