Reflect

In this episode, Liz and Morrie talk about how much they like Scooter. They decide to be nicer to him—and then they find him in a mineshaft.

You’ve learned that you should treat others as though they are better than you. This isn’t easy to do. Sometimes others do things that make them hard to love. If you try to be kind to them just because you know you should, you’ll find it difficult. Ephesians 5:1-2 tells us that Christ died for us “as a sacrifice that pleases God.” Whatever we do for others, we should do it, not for us or for them, but for God.

Want to dig deeper into how we should treat others? Check out 1 Corinthians 12:21-26; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Colossians 3:12-13.

Challenge

Use the divided paper you made for the last episodes, or make a new one using the directions below.

[Divide a piece of paper into thirds. Label one section "Iron", one "Silver", and one "Golden". Choose one of these scenarios, or think of one you have seen or experienced.

  • Someone dropped your books and papers in the middle of a crowded hallway.
  • Someone is carrying a lot of stuff and needs someone to open a door.
  • Someone needs a little extra money to buy something.
  • Someone makes fun of a friend's outfit.

Draw or write three possibilities for how to respond. Iron is unkind. Silver is nice, but not the best. Golden is how you would want to be treated.]

Imagine that Jesus is the person in the scenario you chose. Knowing what he has done for you, how would you choose to respond? In Matthew 25:40, Jesus talks about doing good things for others: “Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me.” Treat people as you want to be treated, but also as if you were doing things for Jesus himself.
