Go Green - Week 3: Building Healthy Relationships


My Story:

  • What is the strangest family tradition you have?

  • Give an example of a healthy relationship. Who in your life has demonstrated this?


Digging Deeper:

Read aloud Psalm 8: 1-9

God gave us the responsibility for taking care of the environments in which we live, our physical environment (v. 6-8), our personal lives (v.2), and our relationships. This week we will study the Bible for building healthy relationships.


Read verse 4 aloud.

  • What two words stand out?

  • What do these two words represent?


All healthy relationships require your head and your heart.

  • What happens when one of these is lacking?

  • In what ways does Jesus relate to us in our heads and in our hearts?


Pastor Harvey described the three building blocks of a healthy relationship, Humility, Unselfishness, and Trust.


Read aloud Romans 12:3

  • How does Paul describe humility?

  • What would you add to Paul’s description of humility?

Read aloud Philippians 2:3-4

  • What else does Paul say about humility?

  • How do you practice humility in your life?

  • What does it mean to be unselfish?

  • How do you practice unselfishness in your relationships?

  • What is your definition of trust?

  • Does trust come easy for you? Why or why not?


Application:

Pastor Harvey says that through biblical discipleship, you will learn healthy relationships.

  • Who are the Paul’s in your life? A Paul mentors, inspires, guides and corrects.

  • Who are your Barnabas’? A Barnabas encourages, brings positivity, hope and inspiration.

  • Who are your Timothy’s? A Timothy is someone who you are a Paul to. You pour your life into.

  • Are these relationships effective?

  • What can you do to make them better?
