Be Humble (Part 2)

Compare and Contrast Pride and Humility

(by drawing some body parts of a person)

human outline

  1. Tell the kids that you’re going to introduce them to two persons.  Draw two large stick figures side by side.  Say:  Meet Proud Name of a person and Humble Name of a person
  2. As you draw the eyes on each, tell that Proud person only likes to look at himself.  Occasionally he sees other people, but when he does, it’s only to see their mistakes, weaknesses, and failures.  Humble person sees God first and then others.  He knows that people matter to God, so he treats them with dignity, worth, and respect.
  3. As you draw the mouths, tell that Proud person brags about himself constantly.  He’s always telling us about his good grades, he’s good in sports/video games, how he is the most popular student and so very cute.  He complains about other people and talks about them behind their backs.  Humble person is often talking about how awesome God is.  He also is known to brag about others.  Like, “Did you see her art project?  It’s amazing!  I can’t believe that person can draw like t What a gift!”  Humble person uses his words to encourage everyone!
  4. As you draw the ears, tell that Proud person hates to be told what to do.  He doesn’t like to hear that he is wrong about anything, so he starts fights when he is corrected.  Humble person realizes that sometimes he makes mistakes, so he hears people out and he apologizes for sin.
  5. As you draw the hands, put a boxing glove on Proud person’s hand.  Tell the kids that he is always causing fights because he never gets what he wants.  Humble person should have a balloon, a flower, or any other treat in his hand.  Humble person honors other people above himself and is peaceable and considerate.  He makes people happy.
  6. As you draw the feet, say that Proud person often stomps his foot angrily.  He demands his own way.  He thinks he deserves to be s In contrast, Humble person is always walking towards needs of others.  He helps people without being asked.
  7. As you draw little stick figures surrounding each of them (to represent their friends, family, classmates, teachers, etc.), ask the kids whether they think that Proud person gets along with anyone?  What about Humble person?
  8. As the kids answer, start scribbling out Proud person’s relationships.  Get rid of these people completely by crossing them out.  Tell them that Pride is a source of destruction.  It destroys everything – friendships, relationships, even yourself.  Pride ends up all alone.  In contrast, add more stick figures to Humble person’s group.  Humility builds relationships because people feel loved and valued. Humble person keeps getting blessed by God over and over!

When we boast about what we have, or look down on someone who is less fortunate, we are telling God that He is not important, and that we think we can do things on our own. This is so far from the truth. All good things come from God, by ourselves we are nothing. Therefore, we must live a humble life before God, and admit that without Him we are lost. To avoid being proud, we must acknowledge and thank Him for all He has given us. When we do this, God will exalt us. Remember that God knows what is in our hearts.

Application:

  1. When you line up for an activity, do you wish you could be first in line?
  2. What advice do you think Jesus would give to a child who always pushes to get to the front of the line? …who often talks about being the best at sports/drawing/reading etc.? … to a child who complains about helping out with picking up someone else’s toys/dishes/clothes?
  3. Ask other ways on how to be humble: Apologize when you have faults/mistakes. Be grateful for what you have. Avoid bragging about oneself. Recognize others who have helped you, give them credit as well, appreciate them. Respect/help others. Accept other for who they are without judging, criticizing and gossiping about them.

Why We Pray to Mary

Lesson and sample story to tell kids on..

Why do we pray to Mary?

We pray to Mary because she is the Mother of Jesus. Jesus loves His mother very much, and Mama Mary loves Jesus very much as well. Jesus was a good son and He always listened to His mother when He was still a small child like you. When Jesus grew up, He helped many people. He healed many people from sickness; He taught them how to be good and how to do good things to one another. Jesus had a mission, and His mission was to save everyone from sin. And He has someone to help Him… His mother, Mama Mary.

And when we pray to Mama Mary, do you know what she does? She goes to Jesus, she talks and prays to Him as well. Mama Mary is also praying with you.

Here’s a story…

One sunny day, there was a kid named Paolo. Paolo had a friend and his name was Jeffrey. Jeffrey and Paolo were best friends. They would borrow toys from each other, play together, go to school together. They shared their baon with each other, and most of all they prayed together. Paolo and Jeffrey were like brothers.

“Dear God, please take care of Jeffrey and make him always happy and healthy so that we can play and do stuff together. Take care of him because he is my best friend in the whole world. Amen,” prayed Paolo.

Then Jeffrey prayed to God, “Dear Lord, Paolo is like a brother to me, he is kind and loving and he always lends me his toys. He is friendly. I also share with him my food when we’re in school and my other toys. Please take good care of him Lord. Amen.”

One day, Paolo got angry at Jeffrey, because Jeffrey lost Paolo’s favourite robot toy, Bumblebee. Paolo was very angry at Jeffrey. He didn’t want to talk to Jeffrey anymore. Jeffrey said sorry, but Paolo just went inside the house and closed the door. Jeffrey was left outside, so Jeffrey just went home. He was thinking of a way how to say sorry to Paolo.

The next day, Jeffrey had an idea. Jeffrey went out of his house, closed the door behind him as he ran and rushed towards Paolo’s house. When Jeffrey was in front of Paolo’s house, he saw Paolo’s mother.

Jeffrey took a deep breath and marched towards the garden and talked to Paolo’s mother.

“Hi ma’am,” said Jeffrey, “is Paolo home?” “Hello Jeffrey! Good morning,” replied Paolo’s mother, “Yes, Paolo is inside watching T.V. Why aren’t you two together playing this morning? Did you two have a fight?” asked Paolo’s mother.

Jeffrey was nervous but he said, “Yes, he got angry at me because I lost his favourite toy. Could you please talk to him and say that I’m really sorry? And that I want us to be friends again.”

“Why sure Jeffrey! I’ll talk to him this instant. Paolo always listens to what I say to him,” said Paolo’s mother. “You wait here for a moment,” added Paolo’s mother.

After a while, Paolo went out of the house with his mother. And Paolo went straight to Jeffrey and said, “I’m sorry too, Jeffrey. I know you didn’t do it on purpose. I was just angry because it was my favourite toy, but I’m not angry anymore because you’re my best friend in the whole world.”

Then Jeffrey thanked Paolo’s mother for talking to Paolo. Paolo and Jeffrey were friends again with each other and they were friends until they grew old.
