This week in Picture News (27.1.23)
This week we were excited to think about the popular drink, Prime! We thought about social influencers and discussed the following questions:
Who has a strong influence on you? Why?
Which social influencers do you know? Why do you think so many people choose to follow them?
What qualities and values would you like to influence others with?
We wondered if perhaps Jesus is the greatest social influencer of all time. The Picture News information reminded us:
‘We can choose the people we want to listen to, be influenced by and follow. Thinking about the qualities and values that matter to us and how we want to live our lives can help us do this. Jesus always set a good example. When he told others to do something, such as to love each other, he did it himself. He asks his followers to do the right thing.’
You might like to use the following prayer at home as you continue the discussion centred around the Gospel Value of Wisdom:
Thank you for the freedom to make our own choices.
Help us to make choices that show kindness, forgiveness, compassion and love.
Help us to follow those who influence us positively and to know we have the power to use our positive influence on others too.
