Reflection Time and Prayer of the Day

Good Morning Brown Clee!

Yesterday we were reflecting on how important it is to show control over the words we use – and to ensure that we use words in a positive way to build people up rather than knock them down.

Today I want us to think about decisions and consequences – as every choice that we make has a consequence – and it is up to us to make the right choice so that we have a positive consequence.

I wonder how many decisions you have made today already?  Have a think and share….

…I think today, so far, I have made at least 10 decision – including what to eat for breakfast, what to wear today, what to say to my daughter when she comes downstairs in the morning, which car to drive to school in and What to do first when I get to school. I wonder how much thought and consideration I put into each decision – did I think about what I was going to say to my daughter?  I wonder what the consequences would have been if I had said the following?

“Have you tidied your room up yet – you’re going to be late?” – I think my daughter would have got grumpy and cross and it would have meant she had a bad start to the day!

I wonder what the consequence would be if I’d said “Morning Lovely – hope you slept well – have a lovely day!”….I think this would have made her smile and feel happy, and would then send her to work with a positive feeling.

Have a consider how you are going to speak to people today, or how you are going to react when your parent asks you to get up, or how you are going to behave when you get to school?

We are all ‘free’ human beings with the ability to choose and do what we want to do and what we actually do or don’t do affects others.

Our choices, thoughts and actions all have an impact on us, but they also affect the people around us. This happens the other way round too.

Someone’s decision not to invite us to their party may make us feel sad and worry that they don’t like us. However, that person’s decision may not have been a simple choice: perhaps they had to limit the number of friends at the party because their parents couldn’t afford to invite everybody.

So as you go through your day, try and think about your choices before you make them – try and think about what the consequence might be and see if this helps you to make the right choice.

Prayer of the Day

Dear God,
Please help us to be wise.
Help us to realise that there are consequences to everything that we do.
Please help us to make good decisions that will work out best for ourselves and for other people.
Amen.
