The Focus

In this video, we’ll talk about being intentional with our time, and the consequences if we don’t strive to live with purpose.

Essential Question

Why is self-control hard for you? Don’t think too hard, just write down some reasons!



A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.

Proverbs 25:28

Often times, the world cares more about what we do rather than why we do it. Which do you think is more important?



What are some things you are doing in order to fit in with those around you?



How do you decide what is wise or unwise in your life?



Can you think of something you do that falls in the “unwise” category?



How can you “walk wisely?"



Read Proverbs 25:28. Explain how a man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls. What happens to the people in the city?
