Teacher Prep | Youth & This Session
Do you know what your students hope for? Is it the new iPad Air or iPhone 5s? Is it a date to the Winter Ball? Is it to get their driver’s license? So many of the things that we hear our students talk about aren’t really the things that they hope for, they are things that they want to have. Our students hope to fit in at school. They hope that they can please their parents. They hope to get into the college of their choice with scholarship money. They hope to do something that will make the world a better place. But we need to remind our students that their hope in grounded in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We need to remind them that their hopes are dreams that God has given them and the gifts and talents to fulfill these dreams. Ask your students what they hope for and challenge them to chase after those hopes with the gifts that God has blessed them with.
