The girls chose a paper style they thought would look good with the letters they chose. We then helped them sound out “leadership.” They took turns finding the letters we needed and sticking them on the paper…they’re kids – the letters will not be stuck on perfect. I then cut the paper to the same size as the paper from last week. We punched a hole in the corner and stuck it on our binding clip. Each week, a new word will be added to the clip in similar fashion. I then wrote the Bible verse on the back. If your kids are older, have them do it themselves. We’ll spend this week learning the word, meaning and memorizing the scripture.
Day #204 Leadership Word Ring – Character Development, Week #30
July 22, 2012 by Leave a Comment
“Whoever wants to be first must be your slave – just as the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a randsom for many.” – Matthew 20:27-28
Definition: The action of guiding a group or an organization; giving guidance
Reason Chosen: We have just spent a week looking at submissiveness. In leadership, it is important to first learn how to be an excellent follower. By follower, I don’t mean one that blindly follows. I am talking of people who decide to put their faith and follow the proper authorities in their lives. Leadership is different in Christian circles. Often times people think of someone who is dominant or heads over people. They may think of someone who is first and above everyone else. As you can see with the above verse, the Bible teaches that the best way to lead is to serve. There will be a part of it that involves motivation and guidance, but at the heart is the best intentions for those who you are leading. I want my kids to be people who can be good leaders at the appropriate times. Thinking of having them motivating others in a positive way, is definitely something we see as an end goal.
Word Ring At the beginning of each week, the craft will be exactly the same because we will simply be adding a new word to our already established word ring.
