Doug Britton Legacy Newsletter — December 16, 2017

Hi _____________,

When I was a child, I used to enjoy watching a puppeteer operate a doll that was hanging from several strings attached to a rod. When the puppeteer pulled one string up, the doll’s arm jerked up. When the puppeteer pulled another rod, the doll danced.

Do you ever feel controlled like a puppet by others—your boss, parents, spouse, law enforcement, teachers, politicians, pastor, or society in general? You might be right. Some or all of them might pressure you to act in certain ways.

Two new Bible studies at dougbrittonbooks.com offer insights and practical tools to overcome peer pressure. (I will follow up with two more studies early January.) I hope they are helpful for you, as well as for people you work with.

I’d also like to invite you to check out my recently-updated Bible-based marriage book, Talking with Respect and Love. It’s ideal for personal study as well as small group studies.

It is my prayer that these resources will be a blessing to you personally, and—if you pastor a church, lead a small group, or mentor others—in your area of ministry.

 

Free Bible Study
Overcoming Peer Pressure—Part 1: Identify the Problem
Your peers probably have some opinions, expectations, or rules that influence you—sometimes in good ways, but other times in negative ways. Learn to identify ways peer pressure affects you.

 

Free Bible Study
Overcoming Peer Pressure—Part 2: Please God, Not Others
Paul wrote, “Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” (Galatians 1:10). Learn practical ways to withstand pressure to do something that would displease God.

 

176-page book
Talking with Respect and Love
In this newly-revised book, you will learn the Bible’s practical guidelines for good conversations. Plus you will discover how to deeply understand your spouse (or anyone else), talk about what really matters, and discuss difficult topics with wisdom and grace. It is perfect for individuals, couples, and small groups. (Small group guidelines and discussion questions are found at the end of the book.)

 

I hope that one of these resources will be helpful as you serve our Lord. May God continue to direct your steps and bless you!

In Christ,
Doug
