INTRODUCTION: Choosing a better family with the ones you already have is attainable, but it requires that you make intentional choices. We’ve discussed three ways to engage in healthier families: proactive protection, selfless submission, and radical reconciliation. In the final week of this series, we learn that better words lead to better families. MAIN POINT: If you want your family to be better, it starts with the rhythms you choose and the words you use. KEY VERSE: “Do not let any unwholesome language come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” – Ephesians 4:29 CHALLENGE QUESTION: Has my language been life giving or life taking? SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: Proverbs 18:21

KEY VERSE: “Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry and do not give the devil a foothold.” – Ephesians 4:26b-27 CHALLENGE QUESTION: With whom do you need to "talk not walk" today? SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: Matthew 5:23-24, Ephesians 4:26-27, Colossians 1:21-22
Choose A Better Family • August 4, 2019 • Nick Petrick
INTRODUCTION: We all have families that look different from one another due to changing circumstances and challenges. If we were all honest, we probably wish that our family was better in some ways. We at Relevant want to help each other choose a better family with the ones that we already have by proactively protecting our family and selflessly submitting to one another like Jesus did. MAIN POINT: We choose a better family when we put others first! KEY VERSE: “I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.” – John 13:15 CHALLENGE QUESTION: What are you doing today to leverage all that you are and all that you have for the benefit of those in your family? SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: Ephesians 5:21-22, John 13:1-17, Mark 10:45
