“For the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)
BDS Character Class on Kindness. Character Matters. Character is the foundation for future success.
Proverbs 11:17 A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings trouble on himself.
箴言 11:17 仁慈的人自己获益，残忍的人自己受害
Today character class was about teamwork. The students were shown a tray of 15 things. They were supposed to remember and list down all the objects. They first tried to list down by themselves, then in a group of 3 to 4, and finally as a whole class. From the results, the students were able to see that when they worked as a group, their accuracy were much more higher than when they worked alone.
The scripture shared from Mark 2:1-12 further demonstrated the benefits of teamwork, when a group of friends helped their paralytic friend to be cured even though it was challenging and difficult. Doing it alone would virtually be impossible.
“I Am Unique” character class uses the idea of snowflakes and teaching the children how unique they are as individuals
