This three-session unit in the Connect series will help middle school youth examine the role of God and God's love in an unfair world. It will examine tough questions as: Why isn't life fair? Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do good people do bad things? Why do good things happen to bad people? Why should I try to be good? Does God care?
Session 1: Living in an Imperfect World - teaches that even though we do not have control over some things, we do have control over our reaction to them.
Session 2: Living Among Unfaithful People - explores how choices made by other people affect us just as our decisions affect others.
Session 3: Living With a Faithful God: Is God's Love Fair? - focuses on the fact that God is a loving God and loves us whether we deserve it or not.
Scriptures referenced in this unit include:
Matthew 20:1-16; 25:14-30
