Here is an alternate introduction for Pressure Points Session Two: The Pressure of Temptation.
To supplement your discussion of James 1:14-15, play this clip from the movie Fireproof.
- Guide men in your group to respond to the quote: “You must destroy any addiction that has your heart. If you don’t, it will destroy you.” Did the character in the clip over-react?
- If there are men in your group who enjoy fishing (especially fly fishermen), lead them to discuss the most effective lures they have found. What tactics do they use to “draw away and entice” fish? How is that similar to how temptation works in our lives?
We want to hear from you! Please share your thoughts on adapting this lesson for men’s groups!
