YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

Deeply Misunderstood

Video:
http://goo.gl/w9EKK

Topic:
Misunderstood, Forgiveness

Bible:
Colossians 3:13-14; 1 Peter 4:8

Discussion Starter:
Whether it’s with your parents, your teachers, your friends, or other people in your life you can probably identify with the cat in this video. You, like some house cats, are sometimes deeply misunderstood.

There are lots of ways you can get hurt when you have been misunderstood. Someone may question your motives or maybe the words that came out of your mouth were taken the wrong way? Or maybe your actions didn’t accurately reflect your intentions and created a problem? The simple truth is that as long as there have been two people there have been misunderstandings. This goes all the way back to the Garden of Eden. Satan created a misunderstanding with God’s instructions to Adam and Even to create problems. And that misunderstanding brought sin into the world!

Yet, followers of Christ can chose an alternative. In Colossians 3, Paul writes “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And in 1 Peter 4, the author adds, “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”

Misunderstandings are going to happen as none of us are perfect. But if you offer forgiveness to others when they misunderstand you, you’ll be thankful that you did.

3 Questions:

  • Are you a dog person or a cat person?
  • When was a time you were deeply misunderstood?
  • What person in your life understands you the most?

Chew on this: 
If love covers a multitude of sins why does it hurt so much to be misunderstood?
