Youth Learn

February 7 Distinct in my approach to conflict – Matthew 5:23-24. Proverbs 15:1-2 Calm down take control of your anger. Learn to say I am sorry without the but. Seek reconciliation. Pursue peace & resolve differences. Be the first to resolve conflict.

February 14 Distinct in my relationships Matthew 5:27-30 Rev 19:7-8, 21:2, 22:17. Gal 5:22-23, 1 Corinthians 10:12-13. Let Christ’s light shine & convict us of the darkness we hold on to. What is your plan of action to fight against temptation in your life? Hold on to purity at all cost.

February 21 Distinct in my reactions-  Choose grace & integrity when others are demanding. Matthew 5:33-42 Ephesians 5:16 What was the last thing you were totally prepared for. Be careful what you commit to. Keep your word. Sometimes less is more. Have you missed any opportunities this week?

February 28 Distinct in my love – Matthew 5:43-48 Love may not always come easy but Jesus gave the example to follow. What do you love to do? Do you know the love of Christ?

Do you have what it takes? Honesty, humility, & security? A honest person can hear & tell the truth. They can receive & give apologies. Truth can heal – do not use it to bring others down. Everyone has things they need to acknowledge & apologize for. Security is knowing you are a child of God & God has a plan for you.
