This week we learnt about the word ‘piety’.
We first heard the word piety in the Pentecost Liturgy last week, led by our EYFS children. They told us that it is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and means showing respect to God.
We heard this scripture:
God’s Call and Choice
God’s divine power has given us everything we need to live a truly religious life through our knowledge of the one who called us to share in his own[a] glory and goodness. In this way he has given us the very great and precious gifts he promised, so that by means of these gifts you may escape from the destructive lust that is in the world, and may come to share the divine nature. For this very reason do your best to add goodness to your faith; to your goodness add knowledge; to your knowledge add self-control; to your self-control add endurance; to your endurance add godliness; to your godliness add Christian affection; and to your Christian affection add love. These are the qualities you need, and if you have them in abundance, they will make you active and effective in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:3-8
We should therefore show respect to God by being reverent when we pray and not using His name in vain. We can also show this by respecting those around us.
We could do this by:
- listening to our teacher
- following instructions
- being courteous and kind
- looking after school property
- taking care of things given to us by others
Your mission this week is therefore to show respect to God and the people around us.
Let us know in the comments below how you achieve this week’s mission.
