Love and Forgiveness

LOVE and FORGIVENESS

Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection (“I love my mother”) to pleasure (“I loved that meal”). It can refer to an emotion of a strong attraction and personal attachment.

Love is an international language that is understood by anyone no matter where they come from, who they are or where they are heading. Love sees no colour, no religion and has no political issues. Love doesn’t see if you are poor or rich, young or old and true love is unconditional.

Every man, woman, boy and girl where all created by God and each one of us are special and unique. Everyone deserves happiness and everyone deserves love.

Sadly, some people have been misled, abused or never been taught how to love. Some of these people have turned to a life of crime, drugs and are homeless. People are so easy to judge and so they turn their backs on them, prosecute them and learn to hate them. We want them locked away, hung or to see justice done in any form available.

Here at King’s Kid Creche we believe its important to teach our children to love one another, to have the ability to say sorry and the know how on how to forgive each other.

Where is the love?

We read in I Corinthians 13:4 – 7 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

And if we look at the 10 commandments, found in Exodus 20 and look at Matthew 22:36-40 when asked which is the greatest commandments, Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is: “Love your neighbour as yourself”

So, we need to love our Father first and then ourselves so that we can love others. By doing this, we can then go that one step further and learn to forgives those who have done us wrong so that we may be forgiven.

We can further read in Ephesians 4:32 and Matthew 5:44 on how to love and forgive.

Let’s strive to make this world we live in a better place:

  1. Listen without interrupting…Proverbs 18
  2. Speak without accusing…James 1:19
  3. Give without sparing…Proverbs 21:26
  4. Pray without ceasing…Colossians 1:9
  5. Answer without arguing…. Proverbs 17:1
  6. Share without pretending…Ephesians 4:15
  7. Enjoy without complaint… Philippians 2:14
  8. Trust without wavering…1 Corinthians 13:7
  9. Forgive without punishing… Colossians 3:13
  10. Promise without forgetting… Proverbs 13:12

It starts with YOU, YOU have the power to make a stand and to make a difference.

Simple rules to remember:

  1. God first
  2. Love one another
  3. Never hate
  4. Give generously
  5. Live simply
  6. Forgive quickly
  7. Be kind always

Our children will grow up to love others if we as teachers, parents, brothers and sisters teach them by showing them how.

LIEFDE en VERGIFNIS
Liefde is ‘n verskeidenheid van verskillende gevoelens, lui, en houdings wat wissel van interpersoonlike liefde (“Ek is lief vir my ma”) tot plesier (“Ek was lief vir daardie ete”). Dit kan verwys na ‘n emosie van ‘n sterk aantrekkingskrag en persoonlike beslaglegging.

Liefde is ̕n internationale taal wat deur enige iemnd verstaan word ongeag van waar hul kom, wie hul is of waar hul op pad is. Liefde sien nie kleur of geloof nie en het geen politieke belangstelling nie.Liefde sien nie of jy ryk of arm is nie, oud of jonk en ware liefde is unbeperk.

 

Elke man, vrou, seun en dogter is deur God geskape en elk een van ons is spesiaal en uniek.almal van ons verdien geluk en liefde.

Ongelukkig is party mense mislei, misbruik of is nooit liefde geleer nie. Van die mense draai dan na ̕n lewe van misdaad, dwelms en is haweloos. Mense is te vining om te oordeel en draai hul rue op die mense, vervolg hul en leer om hul te haat. Ons wil hê hul moet toegesluit word, gehang word of dat enige geregtigheid uitgevoer word wat beskikbaar is.

Waar is die liefde?

Ons lees in 1 Korinthiers 13:4 -7 “Liefde is geduldig, liefde is vriendelik. Dit is nie  groot praterig nie, is nie verwaand nie. Dit is nie onbeskof nie, nie eiesinnig nie, nie liggeraak nie, hou nie boek van kwaad nie. Liefde is nie verlustig in die kwaad nie, maar is bly saam die waarheid. Dit bedek alles, glo alles, hoop in alles en verdra alles.”

As ons verder kyk na die 10 Gebooie, gevind in Eksodus 20 en ook na Mattheus 22:36-40, vane gevra wat is die grootse gebooie van almal, het Jesus geantwoord: “Wees vir dir Here jou God lief met jou hele hart, met jou hele siel en met jou hele verstand. Dit is die eerste en grootse gebod. En die tweede is, wees lief vir jou naaste soos jouself”

So, ons het nodig om eertsens ons Vader lief te hê en dan onsselfsodat ons ander ook kan liefhê. Hierdeur kan ons een stap verder gaan en leer om die wat kwaad aan ons gedoen het te vergewe sodat ons ook vergewe kan word.

Hier by King’s Kid Creche/voorskool, leer ons ons kinders om mekaar lief te he, hoe om jammer te se en hoe om mekaar te vergewe.

Lees verder in Efersiërs 4:32 en Mattheus 5:44 hoe om lief te hê en te vergewe.

Kom laat ons saam werk om die wêreld ̕n beter plek te maak om in te leef:

  1. Luister sonder onderbreking…Spreuke 18
  2. Praat sonder beskuldig…Jacobus 1:19
  3. Gee sonder spaar…. Spreuke 21:26
  4. Bid sonder ophou…Kolossense 1:9
  5. Antwoord sonder argumenteer…Spreuke 17:1
  6. Deel sonder voorgee …. Efesiërs 4:15
  7. Geniet sonder om te kla…Filippense 2:14
  8. Glo sonder om te wankel….! Korientiers 13:7
  9. Vergewe sonder straf…Kolossense 3:13
  10. Belowe sonder om te vergeet…. Spreuke 13:12

Dit begin met u, u het die mag om n verandering te maak.

Maaklike reels om te onthou:

  1. God eerste
  2. Wees life vir mekaar
  3. Moet nooit haat nie
  4. Gee mildelik
  5. Leef eenvodig
  6. Vergewe vining
  7. Wees altyd vriendelik

Ons kinders sal groot word en ander liefhê as ons as onderwysers, ouers, broers en susters dit vir hulle leer en wys.

  1. Very Deep and thought provoking!!!. Well done Teacher Chantal. Thank you for taking us back to the basics. If one doesn’t understand why Love is so important how can we expect our own children to Love themselves and those around them.
