When People Are Mean...Lessons from Genesis

13 November 2014

bullyHave you ever felt angry at someone? Sometimes, when friends are mean or someone hurts us or disappoints us, we feel we’re the only ones who have ever been hurt that way. But that’s not true at all. Since the beginning of time, people have been doing mean things to each other.     

A perfect example of this is the story of Jacob and Esau. They were twin brothers, but they weren’t very nice to each other. Jacob tricked Esau out of something that was very special to Esau—his blessing. It was probably the most important thing Esau had.

Esau was angry when he learned Jacob had stolen his blessing. He wanted to kill Jacob!


BFF Gone Crazy? Boy Crazy, That Is.

sandy heart"Justin is sooooo  cute."

"Is Trevor looking this way?  I think he likes me."

"If I text Micah, do you think he’ll text back?"

Does this sound like your BFF?  You know – the girl who just last semester liked to hang with you and talk about music videos and soccer? And now she spends all day talking about cute boys.

Or maybe this sounds like you!

Seems like someone’s been bitten by the boy bug. Don’t worry, it’s not fatal or contagious, but it can create a lot of unnecessary drama.

So if your BFF is the boy crazy one, what can you do to keep from losing her?


Should Christians Celebrate Halloween?

"What are we going to dress up like for Halloween?"

When Samantha asked her new friend, Ashley, this question, she didn't expect Ashley's weird response.  The two friends were walking side by side down the hallway toward the lunch room. Ashley stopped and almost got plowed down by a line of fifth graders rushing into the cafeteria.  If they kept standing there with Ashley staring at her, they were going to end up at the end of the lunch line.  Which wouldn't be such a big deal if it wasn't pizza day.  The cafeteria always ran out of pizza and those at the end of the line got reheated leftovers from the day before.  If Ashley didn't get moving, they were going to be eating mushy corndogs.
