Topic: 
Stress

Bible: 
Colossians 3:13;  Nehemiah 4:14

Discussion Starter:
Sometimes, don’t you just feel like screaming? It’s understandable as life can be very stressful.

God called Nehemiah to go back to Jerusalem, rebuild the walls, in an effort to help protect the inhabitants from attack and begin restoring the city to its former prestige. But when he arrived in Jerusalem to do this great work, he met all sorts of opposition. Needless to say, he was stressed out!

Nehemiah gives us an excellent example of how how we can deal with everyday stress. He dealt with things like workers not doing the work correctly, people making fun of him, people threatening to harm him physically, and people intimidating him. As you read Nehemiah’s story you begin to see a pattern in his life.  When a stressful time hit you see Nehemiah call on God in prayer for guidance.

“After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
Nehemiah 4:14

Sometimes when we’re stressed out it’s good to take some time to talk to God and ask him for perspective.

3 Questions:

  • Would you rather get yelled at by a goat or a sibling?
  • Have you ever seen or heard an animal do something really crazy?
  • When are times when you are most stressed out?

Chew on this: 
If Colossians 3:13 says I should bear with and forgive people who get on my nerves, does that mean I can’t ever hope they’ll change?
