Today in chapel Mrs Newman talked about loving others not only in the school but also outside the school.
She also talked about using God “glasses” which is looking at others how God would look at people.
It would be looking at others with a different perspective then they’re acting weird or abnormal you could see whats behind it and whats up in their life.
How you could put this message in practice is conforting others when they have a bad day. Also having empathy showing that you’re feeling their pain instead of sympathy wich is looking at something else thats good but doesn’t help.
We should also love because God loved us first.
A verse from chapel;
Colossians 3:12-17 New International Version (NIV)
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
New International Version (NIV)
