Prayer Resources – Example

We are all called to be example and to be inspirational to other people. If only it was that easy?! Jesus was sent to give us an example, to show us that, despite the challenges that we face in our human nature, we can still choose love, mercy and forgiveness. 

Think this week about who looks up to you and of course, who you look up to. How can you be a good role model and set a good example to those around you?

We start with the Sign of the Cross.

Discuss in your forms how YOU can be an example today.

Are there any areas of society in which we lack good examples?

Today we are going to put you to the test by asking you to show examples of some of Jesus’ teachings. The only catch is that you can’t speak, you need to act it out (just like a game of charades!).

There are some examples below to help get you started but you’ll need to turn the projector off so that the whole form doesn’t see what you are acting out!

As you complete this challenge remember the words of scripture:

In the same way your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:16

As always we take time to listen to a reading of Sunday’s Gospel to help us reflect on what God is saying to us.

How can you ensure your small actions make a big difference?
