Quotes I Like*

If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

*Your mileage may vary. Some quotes are puns, or require historical or technical literacy to appreciate. If you miss the humor, please re-read the Internet and then try again.

Rising Above the Petty

Aim: To encourage the children to respond to inconsiderateness with godly self-control

Core Competency: Self-control

Objectives: The children will

  • Recognize the importance of demonstrating a Christ-like attitude in response to inconsiderateness
  • Understand that only Godís power enables true self-control

Key Verse: But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single chargeóto the great amazement of the governor. ( Matthew 27:14 )

Story: "Jesus' Ultimate Self-Control " ( Matthew 27:12-14 )

Materials Required:

  • Jar
  • Rice
  • Ball

Eye on Science:

Place the ball well-buried in the jar, and against the outside glass so it can be clearly seen. Ask the children if they think the ball will sink, stay in place, or rise to the surface when the jar is shaken. Take a vote, then shake the jar (be careful to shake the jar sideways, not up and down). The ball "rises above" the rice because the small rice grains fall into small temporary holes made by the shaking jar; the larger ball requires a much bigger hole into which to fall, and thus is rarely able to move downward. In the same way, we are often surrounded by petty offenses and false friends who break faith with us. Do you sink to their level, or will you "rise above" these small offenses, saving your righteous anger for offenses against God? Rising above the petty requires self-control.
