What would you do Wednesday!
Today’s scenario is between two Christians who are friends and fellow church members.
You catch up on each others’ lives during a regular luncheon with a church friend. You try to have lunch a couple times per month for prayer, encouragement, and fellowship.
While having a spiritual conversation you ask about their spouse. Since so many marriages have spiritual struggles in this age of busyness and information overload discussions about each others prayer and devotional life within the marriage is always a topic.
Today, your friend tells you that their prayer and devotional life is pretty good, but their intimacy recently took a turn to wonderful! Your friend explains that they found a great book that has added some excitement to their life.
Your friend says, “We’ve been reading 50 Shades of Grey. You all should pick up a copy!”
What would you do?
- Take the advice: get and read the book.
- Decline while encouraging their reading.
- Decline and say nothing.
- Decline, recommend a Christian book, and explain why “50 Shades” should not be read.
- Ask if they’d be okay inviting the pastor and his wife for a couples devotion using “50 Shades”.
