Lesson 5: Peer Pressure
Bible Passage: Daniel 3
Bottom Line: When you face peer pressure, take a stand for what you know is right.
Overview:School isn’t always easy. First, there’s all the studying, reading, and homework. It’s a bummer, but it’s necessary. Second, there are hundreds of other students at your school who will interact with you each day. You have to find a way to get along with those people, and be a light that points them to Jesus.
Our foundation is God’s Word. It shows us what is wrong and what is right so that we can be prepared to take a stand when pressure comes. When you face peer pressure, take a stand for what you know is right.
OPPOSITE OF GRATITUDEBy Reggie JoinerI’m not sure how to make anyone feel grateful. My parents told me that I should be grateful a number of times, but telling me to be grateful didn’t make me feel grateful. Honestly, there were times that I felt guilty because I didn’t feel gratitude. I actually thought something was wrong with me. Why didn’t I feel grateful when I should feel grateful? Then at some point I grew up and made a simple discovery. “The emotion of feeling grateful doesn’t happen naturally. It is a result of the deliberate choice of demonstrating gratitude.” In other words, you don’t show gratitude because you feel grateful, you feel grateful because you show gratitude.
I know it may surprise you if I say I have a selfish nature. Are you shocked? For those of you who are pure in all of your motives and never struggle with your egos, I am sure you are disappointed in me. But I have struggled with the issue of selfishness for a while, ever since I was born. So for me, gratefulness is basically the result of overcoming some attitudes that can get buried deep in my human nature. These are attitudes that are the opposite of gratitude. If they go unchecked, they can result in a self-centered and frustrating lifestyle.
On Sunday Mornings, please...
