YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

Boyfriend pushes girlfriend into giant rope swing

Video:
http://goo.gl/9rEbdTopic:
Stand up for yourself

Bible: 
Galatians 5:1; Luke 17:3

Discussion Starter:
We’ve all been there. We really, really want to do something. But then when we get there it’s too scary to go through with. A lot of us have been that friend, too. We know our friend wants to go forward with it and you know that if they’ll just overcome their fear it won’t be so bad. So we’re tempted to push them.

But the fact is that the boyfriend had no right to push his girlfriend into doing something she wasn’t ready to do.

As a believer, sometimes people will try to push you around or tempt you to do things that you’re not comfortable with. In Galatians 5:1 the Apostle Paul reminds us that we should stand up for ourselves, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” As a new creation in Christ we aren’t slaves to things like peer pressure anymore, we’ve been set free!

At the same time, Jesus knew that sometimes we’d get pushed and we’d fall. In Luke 17 he says, “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them.”

3 Questions:

  1. Would you have pushed her?
  2. Have you ever been pushed into something that you didn’t want to do? If so, what was it?
  3. Which is easier for you? To forgive or be forgiven?

Chew on this:
If the girl dumped her boyfriend but then ended up having fun, do you think she should get back together with him?
