7 Children Learn What They Live By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D. If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn. If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive. If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves. If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy. If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy. If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty. If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence. If children live with tolerance, they learn patience. If children live with praise, they learn appreciation. If children live with acceptance, they learn to love. If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves. If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal. If children live with sharing, they learn generosity. If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness. If children live with fairness, they learn justice. If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect. If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them. If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

23 SPRING UP O WELL I've got a river of life flowing out of me; makes the lame to walk and the blind to see. Opens prison doors, sets the captives free. I've got a river of life flowing out of me. Spring up O well. Within my soul; spring up, O well. and make me whole. Spring up, O well, and give to me that life abundantly. CCLI #

40 “ I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say ” #493 Words: Horatio Bonar, Tune: English folk melody I heard the voice of Jesus say, "Come unto me and rest; lay down, O weary one, lay down your head upon my breast.” I came to Jesus as I was, so weary, worn, and sad; I found in him a resting place, and he has made me glad.

46 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. 15 He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.

47 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

48 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

49 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

50 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58:6-12 Acts of worship & devotion not Sabbath alone exploit your workers quarreling and strife fighting To humble themselves more than bowing one’s head wearing sackcloth and ashes

51 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:

52 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

53 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

54 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the L ORD will be your rear guard.

55 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: Then you will call, and the L ORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. “If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, 10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.

56 “” “Games with the hungry” Luke 4:14-21, Isaiah 58: The L ORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. 12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
