Respect

Jacob had a new watch and he was eager to show it to people at church.  Jacob’s Bible class teacher was talking to another adult member  when Jacob came in between them and said, “Look at my new watch” and began to talk about it.

  • Do you think Jacob was being rude?  Why or why not?
  • Was it wrong for Jacob to show people his new watch?
  • What should Jacob have done if he wanted to show his teacher the watch?
  • Was Jacob showing respect to those who are older?  Explain.
