课程目的

1.帮助学生看到他们有时会失控的事实

2.强调圣经中关于节制的重要性

3.给学生提供在生活中保持节制的实用帮助


主题

问责、行为、选择、满足、辨别、节制


背诵经文

箴言25:28


开始祷告(5-10分钟)


团队建造(10分钟)


课堂起头(10分钟)

有些事情失控时很有趣。但更多的事情在失控时并不好玩。让自己在精神上失控是不对的。


• 你经历过最疯狂有趣的时刻是什么?

• 是什么让它变得有趣?


深入学习(30分钟)


圣经清楚地表明我们需要节制。看看本周的背诵经文,箴言25:28。


它说:“人不制伏自己的心,好像毁坏的城邑,没有墙垣。


问题讨论:

1.箴言25:28是什么意思?

2.为什么节制如此重要?


圣经中有很多提到节制的经文。让我们来看看其中的一些。


读 加拉太书5:22-23

节制是圣灵的果子。如果你过着属灵的生活,你就会节制。


问题讨论:

1.那么,这是否意味着,不节制的人就没活在灵里?

2.当环顾四周时,你看到人们如何失控?(滥用药物、酗酒、滥交、过度进食、赌博等)


社会充满了放纵的人。节制不是我们这个社会的价值观。相反,我们常常过度消费。


++++++

放纵:何时够了?


• 我们认为有一个家还不够,我们想要一所大房子。

• 我们对一辆车并不满足,我们想要一辆全新的汽车。

• 我们不满足于旧的游戏机,我们想要最新的游戏机。


看到了吗?我们过度消费。我们不节制。相反,我们纵容自己。我们在一切事情上都是如此:我们的习惯、欲望、娱乐和人际关系。我们想要在脸书上有最多的朋友,最快的互联网连接,最快的解决方案。我们不再发送电子邮件,我们更喜欢即时短信。我们不再用烤箱烹饪,我们用微波炉烹饪。我们不修理破损的东西,我们买一台全新的。我们找捷径;我们寻找最简单的方法。


奇怪的是,圣经预言了这种情况。它预言,随着时间的推移,我们会越来越无法自制。

+++++++


读 提摩太后书3:1-5

问题讨论:

1.这听起来和今天相似吗?

2.这样的生活有危险吗?

3.是什么让我们变得不再耐心?

4.为什么我们不能相信神会供应我们所需的?为什么我们的需求如此之多?


最后,让我们来看看彼得后书1:5-6


应用(15分钟)

我们可以控制自己的生活。有一些实用的方法可以确保生活不会失衡。


++++++

知足是一种祝福


1.学会知足。满足于简单的事物。不要迷恋更多。刻意满足于更少。(见腓立比书4:11)

2.自问,你真正需要什么?(见提摩太前书6:8)

3.认识到知足是信靠神的标志(见希伯来书13:5)

4.当被诱惑沉溺于不该沉溺的事物时,想想你已经拥有的一切祝福。大声感谢神。

5.告诉某人你的挣扎,寻求帮助。


无论你做什么,都不要相信我们的文化告诉我们的谎言,即更大、更快、更昂贵就更好。我们应该对我们所拥有的有满足,因为这是正确的。

+++++++


结束祷告(2分钟)

祈求你能够知足。想想那些比你拥有更少的人。祈求你永远不会相信更多就是更好的谎言。祈求你能够信靠神。求神帮助你对自己所拥有的感恩。

GETTING STARTED (10 minutes)

Some things are fun when they’re out of control. Other things are not good out of balance. It is simply wrong to let yourself get spiritually out of control. 

• What was the craziest fun time you’ve ever had?• What made it fun?


DIGGING IN (25 minutes)

The Bible is clear that we need to exercise self-control. Check out the memory verse for the week, Proverbs 25:28.It says, “Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.”


Discussion Questions:

1. What do you think Proverbs 25:28 means?

2. Why do you think it’s so important that we have self-control?


There are numerous Scriptures that talk about self-control. Let's cover a few of them. 


Read Galatians 5:22-23.

Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit. If you are living a life in the Spirit, you will exercise self-control.


Discussion Questions:

1. Does this mean, then, that someone living without self-control is not living in the Spirit?

2. As you look around our world, what are some ways you see people living out of control?


(Drug abuse, alcoholism, promiscuity, overeating, gambling, etc.)

Our society is filled with indulgent people. It is very difficult, especially in America, to find someone who keeps themselves in check. Moderation is not a value. Instead, we live in excess.

Indulgence: When is Enough, Enough? 

• We don’t think having a home is enough, we want a big house.• We don’t think an iPod shuffle is sufficient, we want a high-gig iPod touch.• We aren’t content with a car, we want a brand new car.• We don’t settle for our old gaming console, we want the newest gaming console.

Get the idea? We live in excess. We don’t exercise self-control. Instead, we indulge in whatever we want, whenever we want it. We do this in everything: our habits, lusts, entertainment, and relationships. We want the most friends on Facebook, the fastest Internet connection, and the quickest fix. We don’t e-mail much anymore; we prefer instant messaging. We don’t cook in an oven; we cook in a microwave. We don’t fix what is broken; we buy a brand new one. We find shortcuts; we look for the easiest way.

The weird thing is, the Bible said this would happen. It predicted that, in time, we would not be able to control ourselves.

Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5

Discussion Questions:

1. Do you think this sounds similar to today?

2. Why do you think living like this could be dangerous?

3. What is it inside us that makes us impatient?

4. Why can’t we trust God to provide what we need? Why is our want list so large?


To sum up, let’s read 2 Peter 1:5-6


MAKING IT REAL (15 minutes)

We want to be sure that you know you can live in control. There are some practical ways to be sure you’re not living out of balance.

Workbook  Activity 

Contentment is a Blessing

1. Learn to be content. Settle for simple things. Don’t be obsessed with  more. Settle for less on purpose. (See Philippians 4:11)2. Ask yourself, what do you really need? (See 1 Timothy 6:8)3. Realize that contentment is a sign of trust in God (See Hebrews 13:5)4. When you’re tempted to indulge in something you shouldn’t, think  of all the blessings you already have. Thank God for them out loud.5. Tell someone what you struggle with, ask that person to hold you accountable.

Whatever you do, don’t believe the lie our culture tells us that bigger, faster, fancier, and more expensive is better. We should be content with what we have, for it is right.

CLOSING PRAYER (2 minutes)

Pray that you can be content. Think of all the people who have less than you do. Pray that you will never believe that to have more means to be more. Pray that you can trust God. Ask God to help you be grateful for what you have.
