Do We Show Respect?

There is so much conflict going on in the world around us. We see it almost every day in the news. If only we could get people to respect each other, then we would live more peacefully. Two things are constantly at work which causes conflict. The one is our own sinful flesh that always thinks it is right and others are always wrong when it comes to disagreements. In Galatians 5:19-21 God tells us what the acts of the sinful nature are, “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions and envy.” The second is Satan who loves to stir up strife and get Christians to mistreat each other.       
In 1 Peter 3:8-9, Peter writes, “Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing.” Living in harmony with others is often easier said than done. So what can we do to respect each other more? Where do we begin to be compassionate and sympathetic? How do we show respect to others and ourselves?  
One way to help ourselves show respect is to be a better listener. Listening to what another person has to say is a basic way to respect them. Everyone wants to feel that they are being listened to.  Along with listening to the other person, have an open mind. Listen to their ideas and acknowledge their viewpoint. It does not mean that you are agreeing with them, but rather you are telling them that their ideas matter. Try to look for some common ground about which you agree.
In addition, be humble, kind, and gentle when dealing with others. These are fruits of the Spirit which are given to us through hearing and learning God’s Word. When you show respect to others, you will want to be kind and gentle. Sometimes asking the question, “Why do you feel the way you do?” will go a long way instead of telling them that they are dead wrong. People tend to gravitate to others who are humble and gentle.  
Finally, do not forget to respect yourself. God made each of us fearfully and wonderfully. Jesus loved us so much that he left the glory of heaven to be our substitute on earth. He lived and died for us to make us his own. We are God’s children! Out of thanks for what he did for us, may we learn to respect others and ourselves for the good of all. 
 

Bethany School 100th Anniversary

The 100th Anniversary Committee has moved the celebration to the end of the year, Sunday, May 16.  Please mark this date on your calendar.  We pray that the immunization program for the Covid-19 virus will have many vaccinated by then.  Secondly, we moved it to May 16 so that we could hold it outdoors if necessary.

5-6 Grade chimes will play for the 3:30 pm Ash Wednesday service this Wednesday, February 17. Students will proceed directly from school to church after dismissal. Please plan on remaining for the entire service (services usually run about 35-45 minutes).

Basketball & Cheerleading Picture Request


If you have a child/ren that participates in either basketball or cheerleading could you please take pictures so we can add them to the yearbook. You can submit them to blsoffice@bethanykenosha.org. Thank you in advance.

Winter Gear


With winter and cold weather present please remember to send hat, ear muffs, scarves, mittens, snow pants, boots, and gloves to school with your child/ren. When it starts to snow please remember that they will also need winter boots and snow pants. We try to get the children outside as much as we possibly can. If your child/ren do not come to school with the appropriate gear they will stay inside for recess. If they do not have any of these items when they come to school.; they will not be allowed to play in the snow that day. Because we do not want them in wet clothes for the rest of the day. Thank you.

Box Tops for Education


Did you know that there is a new way of doing Box Tops for Education? Instead of cutting out the box top and sending them into school. You now can download the Box Top app to your phone as you usually download apps. You sign up and you can assign it to the school. You scan your store receipt within 14 days of purchase for the school to get credit for the box top. If you have any questions please email: blsoffice@bethanykenosha.org
