Known by Their Texts

This Week: Known by Their Texts

If in the distant future some diligent historian were to uncover a letter or e-mail or series of text messages to or from your child, what would they learn from that snapshot? What would they conclude about your child’s character, faith, or values?

We’re pulling our conversation starters for this week from reading 3 John, a personal letter written from one man to another about 2,000 years ago. It’s just a quick note, really, but it tells us volumes about what was essential to these two men.

Teenagers, especially, can have trouble seeing beyond the moment right in front of them. We all do. This week’s questions are designed to get them and you talking about the quality of the lives we’re building, how others think of us based on our choices, and what it means to live in the truth in a way that leaves an impact.

Talking Points:

[Mom or Dad: 3 John 4 says, “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” If you’ve felt that joy, mention it to your kids as a way of encouraging them to keep going.]
