Flourishing as humans is something we all aim for. It can look different, depending on our beliefs and circumstances. Christians believe that Jesus offers ‘life in all its fullness’ which isn’t a life without trouble, but a life lived with Him. A flourishing life is diverse, connected and outward-looking.
WE FLOURISH WHEN WE CELEBRATE & GIVE TO OTHERS
Jesus said, '‘I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.’' (John 10:10)
I wonder what this might mean for us? As we think about the ending of this school year and saying farewell to Year 6 as they step forward into the next phase of their education, how can we live life to the full?
How can we be the best that we can be?
Think about footballers. What do they have to do to be the best that they can be?
Do they achieve this by themselves, or together?
Do you think they always feel good when they play football?
When things go well for you, who do you like to celebrate with? The Bible tells us that Jesus says that He has come that we might have life and life in all its fullness.
If you would like to you can say this prayer...
Dear God, Thank you that you want us to have life in all its fullness. Help us to work together to enable one another to flourish and to become the best that we can be. Amen
