Have you ever felt like you just don’t have anything to reply when someone’s asked you that really tough question?
Over the last couple week’s we’ve been looking at how to put together a testimony, how to share a testimony and the power of a testimony but friday we’re looking at what happens when someone asks a question that doesn’t have any easy answer? What do we do when we don’t know the answer to the hard questions?
In the Bible, the book of 1 Peter 3:15b it says: Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.
Well Friday night we’re going to look at how people in the bible responded when asked hard questions and how we can respond to hard questions in our own lives. So we’re going to delve into what it means to have an answer, whether that answer’s with words or with actions.
Venue: St Johns Church
We know sometimes it’s instinctual for us to want to be kind to the point that sometimes we’ll say whatever comes into our heads to help someone through a tough time. But is that the best solution for the long term?
Some good dicussion thoughts for this week could be When have you felt like someone asked something and you didn’t know how to answer or what to say? have you ever said something you wish you didn’t just to make someone feel better? Was that the best answer? or Could you have said less and done more?
