Clips and Lessons – “New Life” and Despicable Me

Despicable Me - New Life

 

We are called to abandon our “futile thinking” and “darkened understanding,” given over to indulgence and without sensitivity (Eph 4:17-19). We are called to a new life, “like God in true righteousness and holiness” (4:24). What factors might help us awaken to the new life that God has given us in Jesus Christ? Explore this theme by observing a clip from Despicable Me where Gru recognizes his selfish ways and moves outside of himself. Included in this lesson are discussion questions, aimed primarily for high school students.
