YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

 

Unexpected Friends

Video:

Topic:
Friendship

Bible:
Colossians 3:12-14

Discussion Starter:
I bet you thought this was a special effects prank! But if you look at the authors YouTube channel you’ll see that this is really happening on her back porch in Alaska.

On the one hand, we can see how this unlikely friendship could quickly end in someone becoming a meal. But on the other hand, the unlikelihood of their friendship is amazingly fun.

As we think about the people in our lives we can admire this odd animal friendship in Alaska and have hope that it really is possible to live at peace with anyone. Paul writes in Colossians 3, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Love and forgiveness make all types of relationships possible in Christ! Imagine what your school would be like if all of the eagles, foxes, and cats got along?

3 Questions:

  1. If a cat, eagle, and fox were to get into a fight, who do you think would win?
  2. Which one of those animals do you associate with the most? Why?
  3. Have you ever helped make peace between two people who didn’t get along?

Chew on this: 
If it’s possible, in Christ, to live at peace with anyone. Than why don’t churches get along better?
