Key Thought:
Our decision making process should be guided by our Savior's love and example.
Helpful Questions we should be asking ourselves include:
1. Will my absence serve to exalt Christ and His worthiness?
2. What will my absence at church or Bible study do to me?
3. What lesson am I teaching my family/kids if I only go to church when I have no other options?
4. Am I making this decision with everyone's spiritual good in mind?
