Jason Strand - Jan. 20/21
As humans, we have a tendency to take things that God created for our good and for our joy, and we twist them. Something that was meant to be good for us can be bad for us in the wrong context. In these situations, God simply asks us to trust Him—trusting that He loves us and has our best interests in mind— rather than taking matters into our own hands.
Discussion Questions 1. Share about a time when you had someone’s best interest in mind, but they felt your rules or advice were preventing them from having fun. How did it make you feel? 2. Read 1 Corinthians 6:18-20. What does it mean to honor God with your body? What are ways you can do this or are doing this? 3. When you have days when you aren’t feeling love toward someone, how can you change your behavior to reflect love in your actions? 4. How does what you watch or the places you go impact the way you think and behave? What are 2-3 ways you can protect your eyes and ears and walk away from temptation?
Challenge Share your answers from question four with a trusted friend, then ask them to help hold you accountable to those commitments.
