Would you like your children to be more attentive? Have you ever said to a son or daughter, “Look at me when I am talking to you? Do distractions waste your time? If you answered “yes” to any of the above, this session is for you. Dr. Guthrie will illustrate specific steps that will lead your whole family toward being more attentive to one another. He will use a number of volunteers to graphically portray each principle by constructing an attentive ear. This session will focus on issues of attentiveness. Appropriate for all ages. John 10:1-42

2. Guard yourself from distractions.
3. Let the words of others shake you up.

Session Outline for “Hitting the Mark”:
Psalm 127 tells us that our children are like arrows in the hand of a mighty man. These arrows are intended to be cast forth to “Hit the Mark.” Watch as Dr. Guthrie illustrates seven principles that govern the flight of an arrow and direct the path of our sons and daughters. The session will focus on key issues of parenting. Appropriate for all ages.
(The following seven points are the ways we are like arrows)
Design: Accepting God’s sovereignty as to the way He made me
Responsibility: Straightening up when I get bent out of shape
Authority: Yielding to God given instruments to keep me in line
Suffering: Allowing hard times to strengthen me
Ownership: Letting go of the things I cannot keep
Purity: Remaining straight and sharp so that I can hit the mark
Purpose: Focusing on God’s will without distraction from the world
Righteousness: Hitting the Mark
Sin: Missing the Mark
Forgiveness: Accepting the hurt I feel and releasing my offender from the punishment they deserve or the revenge I want.
Substitutionary Atonement: Christ is our substitute. He is wounded for our transgressions when we miss the mark. Yet he forgives us and allows us to shoot again and again and again.
