Scripture:

Exodus 18:17-23 (ESV)

Hebrews 2:1-2 (NIV)


Teaching Notes:


What you consume will eventually consume you.


You are so focused on what you’ll lose, you haven’t considered what you’ll gain.


You don’t know what it will cost you if you don’t stop.


Is what I’m consuming helping or hindering the cause of Christ? 

 

Reflection Questions:

1. If you could ask Moses one question, what would it be? Why?

2. Why is the decision to stop doing things that aren’t good for us so difficult? What are some strategies to help with stopping?

3. What’s an example of something bad in your life that you’ve stopped? What did you gain by stopping it?

4. What are some things that you see in our culture that people refuse to stop despite what it is costing us? What would it take to stop those things?

5. What steps will you take to consume less of culture and more of Christ? What impact do you think that will make in your life and in the lives of those around you?
