Episode 3 Summary
- Relationships and addiction are more closely linked than you might expect. Some people go as far as calling addiction an unhealthy type of relationship or connection.
- Many addictions, like porn and social media for example, promise a false connection.
- Sometimes the things we’re addicted to can show us the things we value the most. At the core root of all addiction is genuine, God-given need and desire.
Where do you feel most seen, known, and loved? When you’re in that situation or with that person, do you feel content? Whether you answered yes or no, why do you that is?

Read Matthew 26:14-56. This is a big section of scripture that shows what Jesus did before he was arrested. Jesus knew his final moments were upon him, but he still decided to serve and be present with his disciples. Spend some time processing what Jesus valued in his final moments and how he showed that he valued it. How do you think you can follow in Jesus’ example in your life?
