The Excellency of Practical Wisdom

The Excellency of Practical Wisdom

Only a wise person can explain why individuals and entire nations are either blessed or cursed, depending on their way of life.True wisdom involves exercising sound judgment and applying knowledge and understanding in a successful way. James lists a number of things that will be evident in the actions of those who are wise. “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.”

13 Simple Anti-Bullying Activities

13 Simple Anti-Bullying Activities

Bullying has become an epidemic in our schools. However it is defined, bullying is not just child’s play, but a terrifying experience many American school children face every day. It can be as direct as teasing, hitting, or threatening, or indirect as exclusion, rumors, or manipulation. During the past decade, bullying has become more lethal and has occurred more frequently than it had in the previous two decades. Cyber bullying with the use of cell phones, the computer and the social media have created an environment for our children where they can be bullied at any time and in any place. The recent suicides by some of the victims of bullying have gained much media attention have proven further that, bullying can no longer be explained away, as some adults are inclined to do, as a normal part of growing up. Bullying has only harmful, not beneficial, effects for the target and the perpetrator- even the bystander. Many children in our nation’s schools are robbed of the opportunity to learn because they are bullied and victimized daily. Bullying exacts a terrible toll on children, and the scars can last a lifetime.

The activity will support the children to improve their critical thinking and discussion skills in a fun way.
