One of the stories which we read in class was that of the Mustard Seed, one of the many parables Jesus created.
We explained the story in a child friendly way saying that we are people and every day we learn new things. This helps us grow not in size but in the number of things we know called knowledge.
God helps us learn by showing us the good things we have to do such as being kind to others, sharing, loving our family etc. We have to believe (have faith) in God that He can help us, just like we believe that from a tiny mustard seed we can grow a tree if we take care of it well.
The Mustard Seed Story –
This is an example of how people can help each other. Even we as young people can help by cleaning up our toys, books, help lay the table for dinner.
Pay it Forward –
The children created their own mustard tree which you will eventually see in their letter scrapbook 3 letter g – grow. They actually used mustard seeds too. 🙂
