“You can get with this, or you can get with that.

You can get with this, or you can get with that.

You can get with this, or you can get with that. I

think you'll get with this, for this is where it's at.”

--Black Sheep

 

The refrain in Black Sheep’s 1991 Hip-Hop classic, The Choice is Yours, reminds us that whether we do so

intentionally or not, we cannot live life without making choices. In fact, even our failure to make decisions is a choice.

The choices we make now, the places we lay our hat, the stances we take, the relationships we nurture,

the causes we support, the people and things we invest in, the way we love and who we decide is deserving of

that love have implications for which side (God’s or others, this or that) we are (knowingly or unknowingly) choosing.

As we prepare for this week’s scripture and questions, let’s continue in our reflection on Lessons from the Fall

and examine more closely the side we are on is the one that has God’s kingdom in view.

 

When faced with decisions, do you face things head on or do you avoid make decisions?

What reasons do you have for either approach?

 

As you reflect on Matthew 25:31-46 and hear the witness of scripture concerning what behaviors/priorities

reflect God’s priorities, what choices are you making to align yourself with God’s priorities?

 

In what ways (concrete examples) do you need to grow as an individual?
In what ways do we need to grow as a congregation?
What practical steps will you/could we take to make the necessary change?
