Episode Theme: Stand up for God.
1. Romans 12:2 says that we should not be like the people of the world. Is it possible to live in the world but not live in the way of the world? How can we do that?
2. Daniel was a Jewish teenager. When King Nebuchadnezzar defeated the Jews, Daniel and his friends were taken to Babylon as prisoners. They were going to be trained to serve the king. The king ordered that they should eat the same food that he did. Daniel knew the king’s food was unclean according to God’s laws. It would have been easy for him to eat the food and stay out of trouble. But Daniel made the wise choice to stand for what he believed. He asked that he be given just water and vegetables (Daniel 1:8-16). The king’s official was afraid that Daniel and his friends would be weak and that he would get in trouble. But God took care of the Jewish young men. At the end of the ten days, they were healthier than the servants who ate the king’s food. As you listen to this episode, think about the importance of making wise choices instead of taking the easy route.
“Don’t be like the people of this world.”Romans 12:2
In this episode, Liz and his friends get carried away giving and taking dares that turn out to be dangerous.
The Bible is full of stories of people who were given a choice and made the wrong one. When Eve was given a choice, she made the wrong one and ate the apple in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6). When Esau was given a choice, he made the wrong one and sold his birthright for a bowl of soup (Genesis 25:29-33). When Peter was given a choice, he made the wrong one and denied knowing the Lord(Matthew 26:69-75). Their choices seemed like the right one at the moment, but they quickly proved to be the wrong ones.
The Bible is also full of stories of people who made right choices. We’ve already looked at Daniel. Another person who made the right choice was Moses. He could have stayed in Pharaoh’s palace and maybe even become the next Pharaoh. But he chose to stick with his people and lead them out of slavery (Hebrews 11:24-26).
