Discussion point: Self-centredness precedes disrespect.
This experiment is a hands-on illustration of how attitudes of self-centeredness and pride precede disrespectful behaviour, which then spoils relationships.
You will need a piece of bread (stale is ideal), a re-sealable freezer bag, a water spritzer, water and dust.
Use the discussion questions to help your children discover we all prefer to be around people who are kind, thoughtful and loving, than those who are out to please themselves.
“Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
1 Corinthians 10:24
“Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.”
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
