Rebellion: The Seed of Rebellion

Last night during FPstudents your middle schooler  talked about where rebellion begins.  Most of us don’t set out to rebel in our lives.  It starts typically as a seed.  The seed is typically selfishness.  The enemy tempts us with it and before we know it, we are rebelling against God and those in authority over us.  Students looked at the story of David and Bathsheba to discover some habits that will help them to break the cycle of rebellion in their lives.  (Habit # 1:  Take every rebellious thought captive, Habit # 2:  Have a Nathan in your life, Habit # 3: Truly repent of your sin.)
