We started out last week with a friendly competition. A culmination of Spirit Week, The “Battle of the Classes” found our high school classes pitted against each another in a gauntlet of contests including relays, tug-a-war, free-throw shooting, and more. In the end, the sophomore class won the championship trophy and bragging rights for a year!
Our lives are filled with all sorts of competitions, good-natured and intense. As fun as they are, very few of our rivalries have eternal implications. Yet, we can also compete in a way that has a great impact.
“In response to all he has done for us, let us outdo each other in being helpful and kind to each other and in doing good.”
~ Hebrews 10:24 The Living Bible
While athletic, academic, and artistic competitions stretch us and help us grow, we also want to give our students opportunities to serve and “outdo each other” in kindness and outreach. Community service projects, performing for and serving grandparents and grand-friends for Grandparents Day, volunteering for the Breakfast with Character – all offer our students occasions to be helpful and kind, and do good.
