Huddle // Family: The Dark Side

One Life Network   -  

Did you ever have one of those “I’m going to stop this car” moments as a kid or now as a parent to your own kids?

Bret talked about throwing oil and cat hair on the Sistine Chapel. Covering the beauty that it was intended/created to be.
When things are going bad in our relationships, the beauty is lost in the fallenness that Bret talked about, but when things are going well we get a glimpse of the beauty of what God’s design should look like.
Share a story where you’ve seen beauty in relationships. What are some beautiful moments that you’ve easily forgotten because they have been covered up? (Covered in oil and cat hair)

Bret said – “The #1 problem in relationships is our self-centeredness.” – How does this principal show itself in marriage … parenthood … and relationships?

Read 2 Corinthians 5:14-21
What does it look like for us to preach the gospel as ambassadors in our marriages, to our kids, and in our relationships?
As a group – write on a card something you want prayer for. (You don’t have to put your name on it). Put them in the middle of the room/table and then everyone takes one with them. Commit to praying this prayer on the card during this series.
