It's Tuesday, 16th June 2020.
Hello everyone, it’s Mr Keep here.
May the Lord be with you.
We are Bishop Ridley, we are One Community, Learning & Growing Together, Sharing the Love of God.
This week we are going to be thinking about the Christian Value of Courage.
Our Bible story for today is David & Goliath (1 Samuel 17)
Our song for today.
Is called I Won’t Be Afraid - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhAH2zU8UiU
Our thought for the day
Yesterday we started to think about what Courage means.
Courage is often about continuing to do what you would normally do when faced with extraordinary situations. Many Christian believe that we should offer our skills, talents and abilities and that God will use that courageousness to achieve great things.
I wonder what you think of when you hear the word courage?
Find a piece of paper, or a tablet (and open up a drawing app). Then have two minutes to draw or right as many objects, words or images which come to mind when you think about Courage.
Ready? Start the timer!
What did you draw – share these with someone in your home or classroom.
Perhaps you thought of a lion, or a Did you know that the word ‘courage’ comes from the Latin word ‘cor’ – heart.
Today, we’re going to think about the story of David and Goliath
Last week we looked around to find a tiny object which reminded us about hope.
Today, in the story, David found another tiny object which had a huge impact. David’s stone needed to be aimed very accurately, but with God’s guidance, he managed to beat his foe who seemed much bigger, much stronger, much more intimidating and much better equipped.
Think about how you could have a big influence on those around you. We don’t need to use weapons to hurt people, because we have other things which can help us: like hope and courage to do the right thing.
Our prayer for today
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
