YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

Clever Dolphins

Clever Dolphins

Topic: Partnering with Jesus

Discussion Starter:

If dolphins could talk, and maybe they can, imagine the conversation as they developed this idea! “OK, I’m going to swim in circles around a school of fish. Then I’m going to freak them out and make them jump. All you have to do is hang out and open your mouth. Bam! Instant Happy Meal! Ready? Open wide on my cue!”

It’s tasty teamwork in the animal kingdom! Most delicious.

If we look at this video as a metaphor for a life with Christ, we see that Jesus is the one who draws the catch. He works in mysterious ways, innovating and orchestrating circumstances in a creative fashion. And our job? Jesus teaches us to show up at the right time and be prepared for what he might have for us.

“Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”

When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.” Luke 5:5-7

Bible: Luke 5:5-7

Three Questions:
1. Which dolphin is more intelligent – the one who figured out how to do this or the ones who figured out how to catch the flying fish?

2. In what ways have you worked together with someone else to accomplish something bigger than either of you could do by yourself?

3. What’s one way you can partner with God this school year?

Wrestle with this: Jesus chose ordinary men and women to do the extraordinary work of building his kingdom. He bypassed all of the people from powerful or well connected families and instead built his team with normal people like you and me. Why do you think Jesus did this?
