Review this week's message.

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • What's your favorite fall movie?
  • Coffee or tea?
  • What is your favorite holiday? Why?

Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
  • What stuck out to you from Sunday's message?
  • How can you “stop problems before they start” in your family? (Talk about the cellphone permit)

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
  • What does leading your kids by example look like? Do you find this hard to do?
  • How can you choose your kid's friend pool for them? Do you take your kids to kids ministry or student ministry?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

Jesus, thank you for my family. Give me the strength to lead and protect them like you lead and protect me. Amen.

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.

Sit down with your family and decide on a family verse and mission. Come up with a game plan to put this mission into action.


Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.  1 Corinthians 11:1 NCV

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.  Philippians 4:8-9 ESV

 I refuse to gaze on that which is vulgar.  I despise what is evil and anything that moves my heart away from you.  I will not let evil hold me in its grip.  Psalm 101:3 TPT

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.  If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble...A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10,12 NLT

“..bad company corrupts good character.”  1 Corinthians 15:33 NLT

When Esau heard his father’s words, he let out a loud and bitter cry. “Oh my father, what about me? Bless me, too!” he begged.  Genesis 27:34 NLT

Words kill, words give life;  they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.  Proverbs 18:21 MSG
