What do we do when our past catches up to us?: High School Small Groups 11.6.16

What we're talking about this week

A lot of us have done things in our lives that we're ashamed of. Some are small things, and some of us have really big and devastating things. Some of us even have things that people close to us don't know about. Personal junk that we keep to ourselves so we don't have to deal with it. Because we don't know how to deal with it, do we? We're afraid that if we try it's just going to make everything worse. But no matter how big our junk is, no matter how much what we've done has impacted the way other people feel about us or how we feel about ourselves, it hasn't changed how God feels about us. God loves us, he always has and always will, and there's nothing we can do to change that.

  • What are ways you avoid dealing with your junk (things you've done in the past you regret)?
  • Do you have people around you that could never do anything to make you love them less?
