Our statement to live by for week commencing 3rd November 2014…

I try to be just and fair.

“It’s not fair” is often something we hear shouted on the playground or in the classroom or even at home. We all know somewhere inside of us that fairness and justice are really important. Unfortunately our world can sometimes be an unjust and unfair place and sometimes even we aren’t just or fair in our dealings with others.

Because God is just and fair God wants us to live just and fair lives too. Pause for a moment and think about how you could live justly and fairly at school today………..

Things that we see at home or in school are not always just and fair but around the world injustice and a lack of fairness lead to terrible suffering and so we pray for our world.

The statement to live by for week commencing 20th October is…

O try to stand up for myself and others without hurting others.

St. Paul was a follower of Jesus; he wrote a letter to his friends in a place called Galatia. In the letter he told his friends that we must help each other and share each others problems.

 

My brothers and sisters, if someone is caught doing something wrong, those of you who know better should set them right. But you must do it in a gentle way. And keep an eye on yourselves, so that you will not be tempted, too. Help to carry one another’s burdens, and in this way you will obey the law of Jesus.
