Friday Nights | 7:00-9:30 PM
In the climactic scene of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, our hero struggles to find the Holy Grail amidst a myriad of false cups. The knight who guards the sacred relic extorts Indy to choose wisely. Moments before, we see the consequences of choosing poorly as the villain of the film chooses the wrong cup and instantaneously crumbles to dust. As the knight says, “He has chosen poorly.”
But how do we know we are choosing wisely? While the majority of our decisions don’t often result in our untimely demise, there is value in knowing how to make wise choices. Even the the day-to-day, seemingly inconsequential decisions can have a lasting impact on the direction and quality of our life when we choose wisely.
On Fridays at Whirlwind, we will be exploring what wisdom is, what it looks like, and how to apply it to our decision-making processes.
Whirlwind is a great environment for Middle School students to connect with God. Below are some resources for the OTHER 6 days of the week.
How can you serve your family today?
Make a list of all the ways you can serve them and see how many you can do before the end of the day.
Find a quiet place and spend some time in silence.
What decisions are you wrestling with? Ask God for wisdom and wait for a response.
In what ways do you need to step out of your comfort zone? How is God stretching you?
Put a rubber band around your wrist to remind yourself to take risks with your faith.
Choose one of the passages below and read it through slowly two times.
Ask God what He wants you to take away from these verses. Read it one more time and write down or draw what comes to you.
At the end of the day, ask yourself these questions…
- At what moments today did I feel most connected to God?
- At what moments did I feel most disconnected?
