Students from 11C prepared our morning worship for 11th October. The theme was about being a hero, using the story of Gideon as an example. Here are some of their reflections …
Gideon replied to God – “Please, Lord, how can I save Israel? Behold, my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.”
A thought about Gideon:
Gideon was a military leader, judge and prophet whose calling and victory over the Midianites is recounted in the chapters 6 to 8 of the Book of Judges in the Bible.
Gideon, like many of us, doubted his own abilities. He had suffered so many defeats and failures that he even put God to the test—not once but three times.
- Think of time where you have doubted yourself?
- How did you feel?
- Who was there to support you to overcome this doubt?
An activity idea:
Create a short drama piece to act out the scenario of Gideon the unwilling hero or scenario where someone has faced adversity and seeks help and guidance to get through it.
