YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

Dads Dancing Badly

Dads Dancing Badly

http://goo.gl/SpPk8Topic:
Honor Your Parents

Bible:
Exodus 20:20

Discussion Starter:
7th grade parent orientation includes a secret section for how to accomplish these dance moves and other classic things, such as kissing their spouse in public near your friends and wearing pajamas to drive you to school. It is a parents right and responsibility to dance badly to the embarrassment of their teenage children.

OK, so none of those things are true. The reality is that your parents probably think they are just having fun or trying to be cool. That embarrassment you feel is (probably) accidental.

Here’s the thing about embarrassing parents. The 5th Commandment says, “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” (Exodus 20:20) There isn’t an out-clause for when they do things that make you cringe. You still have to find ways to honor them.

It’s not easy, it’s a choice you’ll have to make to honor God by honoring your parents.

Just think of it as payback for all the times you threw up on them as a baby or threw a temper tantrum in a restaurant as a toddler.

3 Questions:

  1. Would you rather have bad dance moves or bad breath?
  2. What’s your go-to dance move?
  3. Is it easier to honor or respect your parents?
Chew on this: 
Do you think parents in the Old Testament embarrassed their kids with bad dance moves?
