The Beatitudes

Blessed Are
The Peacemakers

Recess was over and the kids were lined up to go back to their classroom.

Mrs. Nelson was unlocking the door when there was some terrible yelling.

She looked up.

Eric and Adam were yelling at each other.

Mrs. Nelson walked up to them, "Now keep your voices down."

Eric complained, "Adam was pushing me."

Adam started his complaint when Mrs. Nelson interrupted, "We don't want to argue or fight with anyone.  There are times when things happen and we just have to let go.  It isn't so important that we say things to people especially things that hurt."

Eric and Adam were quiet.

Mrs. Nelson gave them a smile.

She walked back to unlock the door.

Jesus teaches us to never fight or argue.

What do you think?
Would you have argued?
Do you feel Adam and Eric were right?
Do you think Mrs. Nelson was right?
Do you think Jesus was happy with Mrs. Nelson?

Write to me and let me know what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.
