In Devotions, we talked about how God calls us to “do what is right” and “live at peace with everyone”. When God calls us to live at peace, this doesn’t just include our family, our friends and those that are easy to like. God calls us to show love even when other people don’t and even when things don’t go our way. This is a difficult calling, but we love because Christ loved us first. He gives us the strength to choose what is right even when others choose wrong.

What does this look like in 3K?

Before I speak (or act), I THINK:

  1. Is it True?
  2. Is it Helpful?
  3. Is it Inspiring (encouraging)?
  4. Is it Necessary?
  5. Is it Kind?

If I am feeling bothered because someone has said or done something that is not right or kind, I:

  1. TALK – Recognize the problem & use a confident voice to tell the other person what is upsetting me. I take responsibility for my actions.
  2. WALK – Find another spot where it is easier to work or play
  3. SQUAWK – If the person continues to bother me in an unkind way, or if a person is hurting me physically, I talk to a trusted adult to get some help.

Please continue to have this conversation with your child at home. Encourage them to communicate well!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! One more week until Spring Break!
