Discussion

Review

Who did you forgive this week? What did you learn from doing this? How hard was it?

Questions:

  • What does being a light to others mean to you? 
  • What are some practical ways you are a light to those around you? 
    • School
    • Home
    • Work
    • Church
  • How do you usually respond when angry or frustrated? (blow up, withdraw, lecture, unkind thoughts/thoughts of revenge, etc.)
  • How does anger hide a person’s light and make them an ineffective representative of the gospel?  
  • What are some areas you struggle with anger or frustration with others (i.e., a person, teacher, school requirement, sibling, rules, injustice, etc)? 
  • How do you think your testimony is affected (or your light hidden) in those situations? (Is someone being stifled in their walk or driven away from the gospel?)
  • The Bible says to be angry and sin not. How will you change your response when you’re angry so that you don’t sin (in thought, word, or action)?

Challenge:

Come up with a strategy you can use to help control your response to anger. This could be a verse, prayer, an action, etc. Put it into practice this week and be ready to share the strategy and your experience next week.
