My pledge Lesson 10

My pledge 10

  • I will be proud of my achievements and will strive to be a better parent, role model and citizen of this beautiful country.

What does the Bible say?

  • Parents and children (Ephesians 6:1-4; Proverbs 6:20-23)
  • Role models (1 Corinthians 10:31 – 11:1; 1 Thessalonians 2:7, 11-12)

Group discussion

  1. What does this pledge mean to you?
  2. Are you a parent? If so, how many children do you have?
  3. What responsibilities come with being a good parent, especially when it comes to disciplining your children?
  4. Discuss what we learn from Ephesians 6:1-4 and Proverbs 6:20-23 about the responsibilities of parents and children:
    1. What are the benefits for children if they respect and obey their parents?
    2. Paul suggests that parents can cause their children to become angry and frustrated if they discipline and instruct them in the wrong way (Ephesians 6:4). Have you ever seen that happening? Discuss.
  5. Why is being a role model for your children important?
  6. In 1 Corinthians 11:1 Paul says: “Imitate me, then, just as I imitate Christ”.
    1. Do you think you can say the same to your children? And to other people with you in prison?
    2. What would you look like if you would imitate Christ? Perhaps 1 Corinthians 10:31-33 can give you a clue.
    3. If you would be able to imitate Christ, what would be the effect on your children and other people around you?
  7. Name one of your children’s greatest achievements.
  8. How can you strive to be more involved in your children’s achievements? How can you do things that will inspire them to even greater achievements in future?
  9. There is no achievement too small in God’s eyes. How did your parents’ own achievements inspire you?
  10. How does God reassure those of us whose parents did not care about us?
  11. If you could do something from prison to improve your children’s lives, what would it be? Do you find any tips for better parenthood in 1 Thessalonians 2:7 and 11-12?

Interesting facts about South Africa

South Africa’s highest mountain is the Mafadi Peak. The Mafadi Peak is 3 450 metres above sea level. It is part of the Drakensberg mountain range bordering Kwazulu-Natal and Lesotho. The name “Mafadi” is Zulu and means “satisfied dog” – not the most romantic name!

In comparison to Table Mountain in Cape Town, which is only 1084.6 metres above sea level, you can just imagine how high Mafadi Peak is – three and a half times higher.

Do you know the name of the highest mountain in the world? It is called Mount Everest. It takes months of preparation to get fit and a lot of money to buy all the equipment, but if you could, would you try to climb it?
