It was holiday time, and lots of children were playing in the park.  Tom and Andrew had met some of their friends and were looking forward to a good game of football.  Just then, along came Paul. “Just look,” said Tom, “he’s got his sister with him!” And there she was.  Jane was dressed in her shorts and was wearing new trainers.  “What have you brought her for?” asked Andrew.  “I had to choose,” said Paul.  “Mum said I could come if I brought Jane, but if not, I would have to play with her at home.”

 

 “It’s all right,” said Jane, “I can play football. I’ve been practising at home, and I’ve got my new trainers.”  Tom liked Jane.  He’d seen her kicking a football in the school playground and knew she wouldn’t spoil the game, but he felt a bit afraid of saying so.  He thought Andrew wouldn’t be friends with him if he did.

 

“Hurry up,” shouted the rest of the gang.  “Aren’t you going to play today?”  It was now or never.  “Come on Jane,” said Tom, “we’d better put our football boots on and show them.” Then he turned to Andrew, “Give her a chance,” he said.  The game started before Andrew had a chance to answer.  And they all enjoyed it.  Tom, Paul and Andrew, and of course, Jane.  None of them regretted that Paul had brought his sister with him.

Come and See 

 

The gifts of the Holy Spirit enable people to live as Christians.  There are seven particular gifts, which are linked together and help people to lead good lives and make use of the gifts they have.  These gifts should be used to help others.

 

Wisdomthat is the gift to be sensible and not to jump to conclusions but be thoughtful.

Understandingenables people to be compassionate and to take time to find out and be able to appreciate what is happening.

Counselmeans using wisdom and understanding to come to a good decision about something.

Fortitude  – there are times when everyone needs to be brave in standing up for what they believe to be right and holy.

Knowledgewithout knowledge you cannot make right judgements or have an understanding. It takes practice to have true knowledge.

Piety  – this is about reverence and respect for God, for one another and for oneself.

Fear of the Lord - this gift enables people to recognise the awe and wonder of God and be amazed by the love and goodness of God.

 

SOME KEY QUESTIONS

 

  1. Which of the gifts of the Holy Spirit do you think is the most important to you? Why?
  2. How do the gifts of the Holy Spirit help people to live Christian lives in serving others?
  3. Where might you experience the gifts of the Holy Spirit in action - at home, school and in the local community e.g. wisdom helps us to be thoughtful and think of the needs of others first.

 

 

  • Ask the children to create a mind-map for one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and explore where these are be lived out by believers at home, in school or parish.  Can you think of other ways these might be lived out? Give reasons why believers act in these ways.
