Sample Leader's Guide
Compassion toward others is at the heart of whom God is. As men striving to live out a Christ-centered masculinity, we must also be men of compassion. And yet many men find that they are compassionate toward those dealing with tough circumstances out of their control. But these same men may not have much compassion for the people around them in the everyday situations of life.
We often don’t have compassion with the person we think should know better. Or with the guy raised in a Christian home who continues to ruin his life with bad decision after bad decision. Or for our children after we’ve asked them to do the same thing for the 100th time. How eternally grateful we should be that Jesus never approached compassion toward us in this way.
The Pursuit: Compassion is a 5-week, video-driven curriculum designed to help men live out a masculinity that is found in the person and example of Jesus.
Rick Burgess, best-selling author and co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show The Rick & Bubba Show, starts off each session with a 10-15 minute video introducing the session's focus. Then, for each small group session, there is a leader guide to help facilitate a meaningful time of discussion and Bible study.
The reason men aren’t living a more authentic faith is simple: they have yet to embrace the call to real discipleship. By leading a group through The Pursuit: Compassion, you’re a part of the growing tide of men who are looking to awaken men to embrace their calling as Christ-followers.
