Youth Group: Smoothie & Milkshake Night
Sunday, April 22, 2018
We had a fun time at youth group making smoothies and milkshakes of various kinds. The good milkshake and smoothie combinations were compared to our good, or “godly” friend groups that we have. The youth group is a space that is created to give the teens a good group of friends to encourage and lift up one another. We then compared that to a not so good combination of ice-cream, potato chips, cheese curls, Rice Krispies, tasty cakes, juice, and a little bit of seasoning with ketchup! That was not a very tasty milkshake.
There are some combinations that do not go together. No matter how much we like them separate, they do not work. For Christians, in order for us to have a relationship and closeness with God, we may need to sacrifice certain friendships or groups that we spend time with. They may be a bad influence, or they don’t benefit us in the way a good friendship should.
Just like the Avengers, we all have some baggage. We all have things that we mess up on. However, we need to distance ourselves from them and anything that can hold us back so that we can be the good people God has created us to be!
