Reality Show Week 1:
While we’d all like to picture our families like the ones in sweet, wholesome TV shows, the truth is, most of our families are more likely to be the stars of a reality show! And sometimes we think the dysfunction might disqualify our families from being used by God. But God doesn’t think so. This week we’ll see that just as He used one of the most dysfunctional families in the Bible, God can use any fractured family—even ours.
Goal of Small Group:
To help students see that every family is broken, but God can use your family anyway.
Hebrews 11:20 - By faith Isaac invoked future blessings on Jacob and Esau.
Genesis 27:4 - And prepare for me delicious food, such as I love, and bring it to me so that I may eat, that my soul may bless you before I die.
Genesis 27:11-13 - But Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, "Behold, my brother Esau is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man. Perhaps my father will feel me, and I shall seem to be mocking him and bring a curse upon myself and not a blessing." His mother said to him, "Let your curse be on me, my son; only obey my voice, and go, bring them to me."
