This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
I always wondered what the theme would be for my 8th grade year at Zeeland Christian and we found one that fits in with our school. We can show our theme, Lost in Love, to others in our school and to people in the world.
I can show this theme many ways at school. One way we can show our theme Lost in Love at our school is tying the selfless theme from last year with this year. Because one way you can show love to others is putting their own needs before yours when someone needs you. For example if someone doesn’t understand what they’re supposed to be doing, help them instead of ignoring them so you can get your work done faster. Sometimes things can get hard for your friends and if you notice one of them is acting down, ask what’s wrong and if they don’t want to tell you, don’t push them to tell you just be extra nice. Because one person can change someone’s worst day just by showing some kindness. When one of your friends does something wrong to you, do not spread or leak any of their secrets that they have told you and asked you not to tell anybody just to get back at them. They trusted you with that information and even though they might’ve messed up that doesn’t mean you should make life bad for them.
As Christians, we can also show this theme to the world. We can show love in other places besides school is helping the disabled or people who need extra help. When you see someone in public who is struggling or can’t do something you shouldn’t just stare at them and laugh with your friends you should go and help them, because if you want to be respected then you have to respect others. Sometimes things happen in the world and we don’t wanna help out because we don’t want to contribute our time to other people. Like just in this past month two big hurricanes have hit the United States. People are going down and helping the states that have been affected and that’s a good example of being a christian in our community. You can show being a christian in our community by trying to get people to God in a subtle way because I think that sometimes people shove Jesus down people’s throats and make it so they don’t want to be a christian because people are so forceful about it. We should get people we love and care about to Jesus but in a way that lets them think about it and gets them interested, instead of basically throwing a bible at their faces and expecting them to want to read it.
We can show our theme, Lost in Love, to others in our school and to people in the world. We just need to be selfless and think about our actions. The littlest things can mean the most.
