But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. – Matthew 6:33

Have you ever thought about what those phrases are really saying?
In our new series, we will talk about the most embarrassing subject for teens to talk about: dating. As awkward as it can be to talk about one’s love life, it important to take a look at dating through the lens of our Christian faith. I mean, if you can’t talk about dating with the people in your small group, where are you going to get your answers? Google? YouTube? Yeah, actually, that’s were a lot of teens find answers. Bu t are they good answers? Not really.
This week we are going to talk about the lie that you are incomplete without someone in your life. Not only is this idea untrue, its a very unhealthy way to view oneself. We must seek to be complete in Jesus before we bring anybody else into the mix.
