Love VS Lust

Love VS Lust

Dear parents,

Use the following thoughts and questions to have a spiritual conversation as a family. Don’t emphasize having the right answer, but focus on spending time discussing the Word as a family.

We are on week two or our Love Life series. This week we addressed love verses lust. Our culture most often tells us that lust is love. But we are told in the Bible that lust always seek to get and is selfish, and love seeks the best for others. 

Love seeks the best for me and others

Lust seeks the to just gratify myself

Read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and use the questions as a starting point for discussion with your students. 

  1. How are you fiends talking about the opposite gender? Is it healthy?
  2. Do feelings last forever? Why is so important to put 1 For 13 in place for any relationship especially romantic ones?
  3. Take some time to talk through how to stay safe online. 

Parents I also highly encourage you to install restrictions on your students phone. Even if they are not seeing porn or other inappropriate content they will eventually. If you have questions about how to have these conversation or what are the best accountability apps I would love to talk with you. 

FOR KEEPS [MEMORY VERSE]

Encourage and/or challenge your teenagers to memorize the Scripture below.

  1. Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, (1 Corinthians 13:4, NASB)
  2. We love, because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19, NASB)

Thank you for letting us serve you and your family 

Pastor Stephen
