Leader Resource 1: Values Continuum

  • Your friend just got a haircut that you think looks terrible, and asks you how you like it. Is it more important that your answer be (a) kind or (b) truthful?
  • Your teacher at school tells your class something you're pretty sure is not true. Is it more important to (a) be polite and ignore the mistake or (b) tell the teacher and the class the information you think is correct?
  • Two different friends have invited you to play at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. One is a longtime friend and one is someone you know only a little bit. Is it more important to (a) be loyal, and play with your old friend or (b) be open, and play with your new friend?
  • A friend says people who haven't accepted Jesus are going to go to hell. You disagree. Is it more important to (a) say nothing, to avoid hurting your friend's feelings or having an argument, or (b) share your opinion and say you think your friend is wrong?
  • You are the line leader, and your group is going to the cafeteria. A friend cuts in the front of the line and says they are really hungry. Is it more important to (a) follow the rules and tell your friend no or (b) help your friend by letting them cut in front of other people?
