Each Person Is Special To Jesus

We were buying something on a nearby supermarket near the house when I heard a little boy commenting on the other boy’s limp walking. He wasn’t aware that we heard his bad remarks. The other boy who was the focus of his bad remarks was so embarrassed and left the supermarket immediately. On the other hand the little boy who commented was reprimanded by his mom.

To mothers with this kind of situation must know that your child may not understand that his words can affect the feelings of other people. He may not be aware that the people in the supermarket hear his commentary words. If your kid comments negatively about the looks, disability and appearance of strangers around him, he can be doing it innocently thinking that those people are like the characters in his television – unable to hear and respond. We as mothers should then explain to our child in a gentle way that everyone has feelings and they might get hurt by our negative comments. Tell him that Jesus wants us to be kind and He loves us all. You’ll help your child like and accept others by telling him that each person is special to Jesus.

I agree. Parents should train their children to see pass through the looks and appearance of other people. It should not be the focus of giving value to someone. And I believe that television has got a lot to do about this behavior or attitude. Children need guidance from us.
