GOALS: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM NEHEMIAH ON WISDOM

SERIES OVERVIEW:

We all have goals! Whether your goal is to raise your grades, learn a new skill, get TikTok famous, change the world, or all of the above, there are things you want to do, accomplish, and become. But let’s be honest — it’s not always easy to achieve our goals. Sometimes it difficult to even know which goals to set in the first place! That’s why, in this 4-week series, we’ll explore the story of a guy with a seemingly impossible goal and the steps he took to make his goal a reality. His name is Nehemiah, and because of his example we can learn a lot about goal-setting, decision-making, leadership, and trusting God. Through Nehemiah’s story, we’ll see that big difficulties can inspire God-sized goals, you are designed for God-sized goals, God gives us strength to pursue God-sized goals, and God-sized goals require God-sized gratitude.

TIP OF THE MONTH

We probably tell our kids that they can change the world, but do we mean “someday” or “today”? And are we actually giving them the tools they need to become the leaders we say they can become? Here are a few things we can do to help every teenager learn to lead right now: 1. Let them lead (and serve) now. 2. Give them responsibility. 3. Help them develop leadership skills. 4. Celebrate their efforts.
