The word of the week is Wisdom!

When we put knowledge and understanding together we gain wisdom. Wisdom comes from experience and learning from our mistakes- it takes time!

Think about the people in your life who are wise, what can you learn from them? how can you use the experiences you’ve had in the past to help you make wise decisions in the future?

Wisdom

As you grow, you will have to learn many new things. You will have to learn about reading, writing and problem solving. You may learn something special like playing a musical instrument or how to play a sport. But learning how to please God is the most important thing every person needs to know. A wise person is someone who has learned how to please God.

The Book of Proverbs uses many short teachings to help us learn how to be wise. These teachings are about staying out of trouble, obeying our parents, working hard and many other things. Even though these teachings were written a long time ago, they still teach us a lot today.

 

God’s Wisdom Brings Us Happiness

Proverbs 3:21-26 (GNT)

A reading from the book of Proverbs,

My child, hold on to your wisdom and insight. Never let them get away from you. They will provide you with life—a pleasant and happy life. You can go safely on your way and never even stumble. You will not be afraid when you go to bed, and you will sleep soundly through the night. You will not have to worry about sudden disasters, such as come on the wicked like a storm. The Lord will keep you safe. He will not let you fall into a trap.

The Word of the Lord

Thanks be to God

 

Our parents, carers and teachers tell us lots of things to help teach us how to live. In this passage from the book of Proverbs, a father is giving his child advice for living a good life. Above all, the father says to be wise.

God is wise. He gives us wise advice like the Ten Commandments. Following His wise advice brings us happiness. If we follow God’s Commandments, we will be happier.

 

Spend some time looking through a bible or searching online some of the other passages in the book of Proverbs on WISDOM.

Let us know in the comments box below how many you can find or your favourite passage on wisdom!

 

Let us pray…

Dear Lord,

Fill me with the Holy Spirit so that I may be full of wisdom, strength and understanding. Give me the courage to to do what is right and follow your teachings in all that I do.

Amen

On Sunday we celebrated the Solemnity of St Peter and St Paul!

Both Peter and Paul are really important people in the early Church.

Peter was one of the original 12 Apostles who travelled with Jesus throughout His Public Ministry. St. Peter was chosen by Jesus to spread the good news about Him and shepherd his people. That is why the responsibility given to St. Peter has continued throughout the ages and now our Pope – Pope Francis, is continuing the work started by St Peter.

In paintings of St Peter we often see him holding keys. Keys lock doors, but they also open them. As a disciple, Peter spent his time sharing Jesus’ message with other people. He opened their hearts to God’s love, just like a key opens a door.

Watch the video below to find out more about St Peter..listen carefully as this will help you with the quiz below!

Become a Missionary Disciple…

This term, every school within the Nottingham Diocese will be exploring the theme ‘Missionary Discipleship’!

How can we play an active role in the wider community and be the face of Christ for others?

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”(Matthew 28:19)

 

Each week we are inviting you to take a different Challenge to complete from below…

  1. Read a Bible story every weekend or ask a grown up to read one to you.
  1. Tell your favourite Bible story to a friend or family member.
  1. Ask a friend to share with you a Bible or religious story that is special to them.
  1. Make a poster about Jesus and put it on your bedroom window so people can see it.
  1. Learn the names of Jesus’ Twelve Disciples. Who is your favourite disciple and why?
  1. Say a prayer for someone who is struggling, ill, or felling sad.
  1. Find a new charity to help. You could say a prayer for the charity and the community they are helping and/or create a poster about all the amazing things the charity does.

  2. Look for an opportunity every day to do an act of kindness for someone…ask someone how their day is, smile, ask if there is something you can do to help around the house, write a letter to someone or send someone a positive message!
