Here are the questions we thought about and talked about last night at the REALM. This was the beginning of a discussion that will be carried on and expounded upon further by Chris and Bruce over the next two weeks. It would be beneficial for you to read through the questions and then look up the verses listed below, as preparation for next week.
Last night we spent a lot of time in small groups talking through the questions/topics:
Friendship – What do you enjoy about your friends? How do you decide what relationships to invest yourself in and commit to? Do these relationships impact how you think about things?
Dating – What do you find yourself attracted to most in a person? What makes a person “datable” to you? Does the person you date have any influence in your life?
Career – What do you hope to do when you are older? What are the benefits of this career path? How did you decide this is what you want to do?
School – Where do you go to school? How did you reach the decision to go there?
Finances – What is the last thing that you saved up to purchase? What made you decide to spend your money on it? Where do you spend most of your money?
Time – Are you good at managing your time? Where do you spend most of your time? What is one thing that you always seem to have time to do?
Entertainment – What type of music do you find yourself listening to most often? What is your favorite type of movie (action, drama, sci-fi, suspense, etc)? If you could meet any person currently alive on the planet, who would it be? Are there any restrictions about what you will listen to or watch?
Here are some Scriptures to read and ponder in preparation for our continuing discussion next week:
