Our priorities are often a relentless pursuit of selfish ends — security, prestige, renown, pleasure. Yet, these selfish priorities can be disrupted by love, beauty, and grace. We are then torn and must make the choice of whether to reorient our priorities. In this lesson by Russ Pearson, you can lead your students into a discussion involving this dilemma, as demonstrated in the film, Despicable Me. Discussion questions include a comparison with Jesus’ priorities in Luke’s gospel.
