GOAL OF SMALL GROUP
To help students see that they can have a relationship
with God regardless of their mistakes or their past.
THINK ABOUT THIS
Leaders, at this phase, students are developing the ability to see other people from a different perspective. You can help your students realize that neither character was all right or all wrong.
Leaders, people are always more complex than we think—even when at first, we think it’s just good versus bad. By the end of the story, everyone had their successes and failures. This story is also not just a story of two brothers, this story is about a father who loved two sons more than they thought. Pay attention to the students in your group who may need a reminder that they are wanted and worthy of being in your small group. Reach out to them this week and remind them how thankful you are to have them in group.
