Making Memories | Apr 8 – 14, 2018
Series Big Idea
This series will challenge us to take a big-picture view on what truly matters: our most important relationships.
Message Big Idea
Our most treasured memories are memories of meaningful relationships.
Ice Breaker and Opening Thoughts
- What was your favorite vacation?
- It’s been said that no one says, “I wish I would have spent more time at the office,” on their deathbed. We often fill our lives with activities that don’t align with what we say we value the most. On a scale of 1 – 10 where 1 represents misalignment with values, and ten represents fully aligned, how aligned are your values with how you spend your time?
- Read Matthew 20:29-34. What do you notice about the interactions between Jesus, the blind men, and the crowd?
- Which characters do you identify with most? The blind men, the shouting crowd, or even those who watched quietly? Why?
- In this passage, Jesus Slows down, Sees the blind men, and Serves them. He asks the question, “What do you want me to do for you?” What can we learn from Jesus about how to best serve the people we encounter?
- As we look at slowing down, seeing others, and serving, which of these three comes easiest for you and why?
- Making meaningful memories requires us to be intentional about how we spend our time. How could you practice these three S’s right now in your most meaningful relationships?
What relationship could you invest in this week? Make a plan this week to intentionally slow down, see, and serve that person. Share with the group what you intend to do and check in with each other the next time you meet. Close the group in prayer.
