9/11-12: “What if someone hates me?”
Double Dog Dare: No one likes to feel hated. Plain and simple, hate doesn’t feel good—for you or your enemy. So don’t hate back; respond with love instead. This week I dare you to act lovingly toward your enemies. If you don’t think you have enemies, choose one or more people you find hard to get along with, and do loving things for them. Then watch what God does in your relationships when you take the risk to follow him more closely!
Read: 1 Samuel 18:28-29; 19:1-12; 23:14; 24:1-22
Ask: Name three respectful actions. Name three DISrespectful actions. Why do you think God cares whether or not we show others respect?
