During our collective worship, children talked about what generosity means and how we can show generosity every day.
The children talked about how the joy of heaven is given to us out of Gods generosity and how God wants us to be generous too. They explained this by telling the class that we can show this every day and not by possessions and giving something to someone, but with our time and love.
These are some of the questions the children asked:
Can you remember a time at home, at school or in the community when you have been generous or when you have given something without expecting anything else in return?
Been generous is someone who is willing to share and put others needs first. How do you feel when you have been generous to someone or when they have been generous to you?
We have also been learning all about Fairtrade and how important it is for people to be treated fairly, this is how Jesus wanted us to be and how we can follow in Jesus footsteps, we are unique and special and deserve to be treated fairly.
Gospel reading (Matthew 20:1-16)
Help us to be generous and
Do all the good we can,
By all the means we can,
In all the ways we can,
In all the places we can,
At all the times we can,
To all the people we can,
As long as we ever can.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for your generous love.
Please help us to grow generosity and to do your work in the world with a loving and generous heart.
