We recently had a discussion on Christian Relationships in bible study. We wanted to present all our members with the multiple scenarios that could actually happen and we came to agreements on the best possible solutions. So our question to you is – as a Christian – “What Would You Do?”
Scenario #1: A close friend of yours, Alex, asks you for a favor. Alex needs you to drive him to a job interview tomorrow at 10am. You know he has been looking for work for a while and this is his only job opportunity. But there is a problem. Your shift at work starts at 10:30AM tomorrow. You have been late to work twice this year and your supervisor has already scolded you about being on time. However, Alex expresses to you that he needs you to come through and do him this favor. As a Christian, what do you do?
Scenario #2: Today Kendra, your classmate in Anatomy, invites you to a tutoring session. You do not know Kendra very well, but you do know that you are failing this class. And last week, you agreed to play a basketball game with Marcus, your best friend the same day that the tutoring is. When Marcus calls you tonight to confirm your game with him, what would you tell him?
Scenario #3: You are married with three kids. During dinner tonight, your daughter, Lisa, and your spouse get into an argument about her grades in school. Frustrated, Lisa yells at your spouse, curses at you and goes to her room. She proceeds to slam the door and play loud music. Your spouse is upset. As a Christian, what do you do?
Scenario #4: You are happily married and have two kids. The children constantly argue, bicker and fight. You have trained and taught them biblical values but the tension does not stop. How do you two, as parents, deal with sibling rivalry?
Scenario #5: Ladies: You just met the man of your dreams, Morris! You’ve been praying about who your husband is and once Morris stepped to you, you figured this was the one. About 3 months have gone by and you are still having those butterflies fluttering in your stomach. But Morris, being honest, reveals to you that he has in incurable STD (sexually transmitted disease). As a woman of faith, what do you do?
Scenario #6: Men: You just met the woman you have been searching for. Her name is Venetta! You’ve been praying for your future wife and you are faithful that Venetta is the woman whom you are to marry. You even starting looking the engagement ring. About 3 months have gone by and you are still believing that God has blessed you with this wonderful lady. But Venetta, being compassionate and gentle, reveals to you that she has in incurable STD (sexually transmitted disease). As a man of God, what do you do?
Scenario #7 You are a pretty established person and have great stability. You have a savings account. But now you are married. Once you are married, should you share the account with your spouse, or no? Explain.
