YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

The Blind Skateboarder

Video:

Children of LightBible:
Ephesians 5:8-13

Discussion Starter:
What strikes me about Tommy’s skateboarding is his confidence. To him it’s no big deal. To us it looks like a miracle.

Tommy took something most people would view as darkness, his blindness, and brought light to it with his bravery, practice, and positive attitude. No one on the planet would have looked down on him had he never tried skateboarding. But everyone who sees him is impressed because he hasn’t just tried it, he’s figured out how to use his disability to take skating to a whole new level.

In Ephesians 5, the Apostle Paul reflects on this same idea. He says that before we knew Christ we once belonged to darkness. But now, Paul says, we are “children of light.” While we once belonged to the darkness we don’t have to be afraid. Instead, we’re called to bring light into dark places. “But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.” (Ephesians 5:13)

3 Questions:

  • If you had to pick, which of your five senses would give up?
  • Tommy says that falling is a skill you get good at. Is that also true of being a Christ follower?
  • In the video, Tommy said that he gets an adrenaline rush when he finally lands a trick. What’s something that gives you a big adrenaline rush?

Chew on this: 
Why do you think God puts obstacles in our lives to overcome?
