Here is a news story you can use to help introduce this session on “The Pressure of Temptation.” After hearing responses to the introductory question, “What food tempts you to say yes to just one more bite?” share that on August 12, 2013, thieves in the UK broke into a cafe in order to get quiche. They were arrested after a five hour standoff with police (To learn more about this story, enter the phrase “British Quiche Thieves” into your browser search engine) .
- For these burglars, apparently the temptation of quiche was enough to get them to do something they knew was wrong. What do you think are some of the warning signs that being tempted is crossing the line into giving in to temptation?
- This is an example of “a little thing” (hunger for quiche) becoming a “really big thing” (aggravated burglary). Would you say most temptation works like that? Can you give any other examples?
Continue with the plan on page 25 of the Leader Guide, highlighting The Point that “God won’t tempt me, but He will provide a way to resist temptation.”
We want to hear from you! What are some current events you are thinking of using to get into this session’s topic?
