Respecting Other People’s Things

Fred was spending the day at Ginny’s house. Fred was rolling toy cars down Ginny’s long hallway. He began to make the cars go faster though they slammed hard against the wall. Fred did not worry about hurting the wall or the cars because they did not belong to him. Ginny was sad because the cars were a special gift from her father and the marks on the wall were ugly.

Do you think Ginny would invite Fred to her house again? Why or why not?

How do you feel when people are rough with your things? How should you take care of other people’s things?

My passion is analyzing information, exploring ideas, lifelong learning and sharing knowledge with others. I have a wide range of interests and am not easily bored so I approach unfamiliar and diverse subjects with great zeal. I am a business nerd, fascinated by what can be accomplished through innovative companies and people who want to change the world. My faith is very important and I enjoy opportunities to share my observations and study insights through teaching and writing. I follow the simple teachings of Jesus and try to reflect His glory in my life. I work with young people on applying the teachings of Jesus to their unique challenges and opportunities.
