MEANT TO BE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON WISDOM
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: THE PURPOSE OF DATING IS TO LEAD TOWARD MARRIAGE

SERIES OVERVIEW:
“We’re meant to be.” It’s how all of our favorite movies, songs, and books talk about love—as if the secret to an amazing relationship is a little bit of destiny, a whole bunch of feelings, and a tiny dash of magic. So it makes sense, when we observe the not-so-perfect, real-life relationships modeled by our friends, parents, and favorite celebrities, that we might start to wonder, “Wait—is that how relationships are meant to be?” In this 4-week series, you’ll give students a better lens for evaluating their current and future dating relationships as you help them see that the secret to a relationship that’s “meant to be” is to stay close to Jesus, date with purpose, know who you’re looking for, and keep sex in the right context.

New research shows that the secret to living a longer and healthier life may be something unexpected: a healthy social life. As you watch this short talk, reflect on a couple of questions. How can you help teenagers build healthier relationships? And how can you model healthier relationships in your own life?

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
