Beach Meet-Up / Community Group – 8/13/20 (Thursday)

Brian Sullivan   -  

The Proverbs, and all of Scripture, help us live wisely, even beautifully, in our family relationships, no matter what size or shape they may take. 

There is a foolish and a wise way to interact in all of these relationships. We can either curse and despise our parents (Proverbs 15:20, 20:20), or we can honor and thank them (Exodus 20:12). We can quarrel with and tear down our spouse (Proverbs 19:13), or we can praise and build them up (Proverbs 31:10–31). We can give our children over to folly and destruction (Proverbs 17:21), or train them up in the way they should go — which ultimately is heaven! (Proverbs 22:6). Each day we have an opportunity to help our families flourish or fade. 

Would love to have you join us this week – here are the details and questions we will discuss:

  • Thursday July 30th – 6:00-7:00pm (dinner + discussion)
  • Carlin Park – 400 Florida A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477  (picnic tables behind Lazy Loggerheard Cafe) 
  • Bring your own dinner if you would like to eat
  • Also, you are welcome to bring a chair and stick around for as long as you like to hang out on the beach

We will discuss anything that we beneficial from the sermon plus a few questions adapted from the “Find Your Way” community group study (you can work through on your own).


Discussion –Parenting

Discuss anything from the text, sermon or blog post that caught your attention, challenges or confuses you

There is a call for all children – no matter the age – to honor their parents. Talk about the implications of this

Why is it so important for a parent to teach kids godly wisdom? How does the parent’s relationship with God shape that? 

We talked about a parenting framework of delight, disciple, discipline. Why is each important? What are your strengths/weaknesses? 

Talk about the significance of living out of your identity in Christ when it comes to parenting and family?
