Use this space to take your general notes during the message.
We begin a brand new series this week called, "The Perfect Family". It's a series about creating a thriving and healthy environment with those we love most.
Ice Breaker: What comes to mind when you think of the "perfect family"?
We categorize our lives; family, work, school, friends, etc. While this can be great for staying organized and scheduling, it's not always realistic. The problem is that oftentimes, the categories blend together. How have you seen examples of this in your own life?
God is not a category in your life. He is the context of all your life. Following Him should impact everything you do especially when it comes to family and relationships. Think about the people in your life, how does following Jesus affect your relationship with them?
Read Eph 5:1-2 (NLT). In what ways can you imitate God when interacting with those in your life?

Pastor Jonathan gave us a simple and clear question to ask ourselves to help keep the focus on our relationships Jesus-centered; "What does love require of me"? How might this question reframe your relationships?
We are just getting started with this series and there is much more to come! Pray that over the next few weeks, God reveals ways that you can put Him first in your relationships.
