Homeschool or public school? Neighborhood friends or church friends? Playing at the park or in the backyard? These are just some of the social dilemmas that families face today. As believers, we want to shepherd our families towards the things of God and away from things of the world. How should we expose our families to the lostness that surrounds us while we protect ourselves from living in darkness?

Biblical Basis:

This is a matter of love (1 John 2:15-24)

Jesus’ life is a good example

  • 12 Disciples (Mark 3:13-19)
  • Inner circle of 3 (Mark 9:1-9; Matthew 26:36-46)
  • Private prayer time with God (Matthew 14:23; Luke 5:15-16; 6:12)
  • Much time in the midst of the last, least, and lost (Luke 5:27-32, 19:1-10)
