“‘Honor your father and mother’ — which is the first commandment with a promise–‘that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.'” – Ephesians 6:2-3
Today, we focused on respecting our world. We talked about how God gave us a beautiful planet, and we are suppose to care for it. We talked about how garbage goes in a garbage bin. We also discussed recycling and not using too much water or paper products (unless it’s paper towels, in my opinion…definitely a character flaw). We also took a walk around the neighborhood with gloves and bags. The girls had fun on their treasure hunt for trash. Abby joyfully exclaimed, “It’s a good day for trash finding.”
The best way to show kids how to respect our world is take positive actions to do it as an individual and as a family. Having your kids walk through their own neighborhood and help make it more beautiful is a simple and yet powerful step. I hope you get out and do this simple activity with your kids.
