Questions to consider...
- What are the impacts of bullying, prejudice and rejection in your school that you know about?
- What might be the impacts you don't know about?
- The Bible (in Isaiah 53:3) says Jesus knows exactly what it's like to suffer rejection. Why would he allow himself to feel like that?
- How can you stand with those who feel alone or rejected? What hope is there for those who feel this way? Psalm 121:1-2.
God please help see that bulling, prejudice and rejection really are killers and that we can stand against them. Please help us not to hate those who are different from us, either by our action or inaction but rather to care for and value all life, including our own. Amen.
