Love Songs

Compare cultural messages about love with God's messages.


Paper, pens


Split into groups of two or three and give each group a sheet of paper. Allow groups 90 seconds to list as many song titles as possible that contain the word "love." When the time is up, have each group share their responses. Then discuss:

  • Which songs were listed the most?
  • Who had the oldest song? The most recent?
  • Who listed the most obscure song?
  • How do the messages of these songs compare with what we know about love from God?
