More Than Friends - Week 1
Whether you want to date someone or are dating someone, one thing is true: When you’re in high school, dating is on your mind. But for all the time we spend thinking about it, as soon as we actually start dating, the thinking tends to stop. This week, we’ll discover that the best thing we can do for ourselves and our dating relationships is to keep thinking.
Goal of Small Groups:
To help students begin to think clearly and long-term when it comes to their current or future dating relationships.
Dating is great, but thinking is better.
Context of Scriptures:
Samson got so wrapped up in his relationship that he couldn’t think clearly anymore. And like most people caught up with a person or relationship, the first thing to go was Samson’s ability to use good judgment. He stopped thinking. He was driven by his emotions and feelings for Delilah, not his logic. And eventually, he gave in. The same can happen to us today. While we might not be ruler or a judge, when thinking clearly takes a backseat in our dating relationships, it can lead to poor decisions.
