Icebreaker Question:If you had three wishes to use for yourself on frivolous stuff, what would you wish for? What if you had three wishes for serious stuff? (And not things like world peace, curing world hunger, and salvation for all. Because of course, we would all choose these.)

Read Lesson and Bible Verses:Over the years, I’m sure we’ve all run across various issues that are “gray areas” in Scripture. These are the things that Scripture doesn’t talk about specifically, but that each Christian needs to decide for themselves. Ideally, we would all make up our minds about these things and not worry about what someone else decides about them. But the problem is that many times, these issues can cause conflict and divisions between Christians. And that’s not good.
But let’s take some time to explore various “gray areas” (or are they really more black-and-white?) and to consider what Scripture says about how to make decisions for how we live. Not everyone will come to the same conclusions about these, but talk about the ones that interest you and challenge each other to figure out your positions on them. (But do not let it turn into fights. Skip any topic that may lead to that, or that might stumble another believer. But it is my assumption that you are all mature Christians and can handle hearing different points of view on gray areas.)
