Question of Character slide
Series Overview:
Through a brief look at four biblical characters, we will explore what it looks like to have the courage to stand up for someone in need, to speak up when we disagree, and to sacrifice what we have for someone else. We will see what life looks like when we risk social standing in order to do the right thing. In the end, the tough decisions in life are not always about right or wrong but are a “Question of Character“.
Overview of week 1:
We’ve all felt entitled towards certain things, haven’t we? You’ve probably heard, “That’s my chair”, or “I always bat first”, or “She’s my best friend so she always call me first”. We feel we have rights and with those rights a certain kind of power over other people. Today we looked at a time when David was king and had the right to kill a guy named Mephibosheth because he was part of the previous royal family, but he didn’t. Just because David had the right didn’t mean it was the right thing to do. He came to a juncture where his power met his principal beliefs. We want Transit students to begin thinking about what they would do at this juncture, because having the right doesn’t always make it right.
“Don’t be afraid,” David said to him, “for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.”  –  2 Samuel 9:7
