Reflect

In this episode, the gang had to find a way to respectfully tell an adult about the problems that he was causing for them. Think about the different people in your life. Each of these people is created in the image of God. “The image of God” is not about what someone looks like. Each person can show you a little bit of what God is like. And you get to know God better with every person you meet. So what do you do with that information? You can start with respect. Everyone has a special quality or ability given by God. That means every person has value. That includes you too! Don’t think that you are better than other people. When you talk to other people, you should fill your talk with humility, care, trust and respect.

Dig deeper and read these scripture verses about how to treat other people: John 13:34; Romans 12:10; Hebrews 12:14.

Challenge

Everyone needs to learn how to talk to other people. Good habits and manners, such as a how to make a proper introduction and how to speak clearly, will make you feel confident and make the other person comfortable. Remember to show that you believe that everyone is created in God’s image and should be respected.

Practice with your family or friends how to say “Hello” with eye contact, a smile and possibly a handshake. Act out conversations by asking polite questions and by telling short stories.
