Learning To Help Those In Need
As any parent knows, teaching children a Biblical worldview is a difficult task. This is because children are bombarded with the secular world’s view on life every day. Because of this, it is crucial to be intentional with Biblical worldview training at all times.
In Freedom’s Cause is a great way to help you introduce important topics with your children in a fun and natural way. Your kids will learn a Biblical worldview as they engage with this audio drama.
Worldview Training: Helping Those In Need
From The Audio Drama
In Freedom’s Cause tells the story of William Wallace, one of Scotland’s greatest heroes. He led the Scottish resistance forces during the first years of the long struggle to free Scotland from English rule.
William Wallace believed that the people of Scotland should be free. Unfortunately, they were taken over by the English King Edward I against their will. However, William Wallace knew it was wrong and so fought for the freedom of the people of Scotland. In doing so, he inspired others to join him in the fight for freedom.
Relating It To Today
The English King was a lot like a bully. In fact, King Edward I was bullying the people of Scotland. Today, bullies hurt other people every day. Bullies might beat someone else up or make fun of someone.
Because of the English oppression, the people of Scotland were very poor and didn’t have enough to eat. In the same fashion, there are many people today who don’t have enough food or clothing.
A Biblical worldview says that we should help the oppressed, just like William Wallace. In other words, we should help those in need.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me” (Matthew 25:35-36).
The following questions are a guide to help you as you converse with your children about helping those in need. You may have to prompt your children, particularly when it comes to the application.
- Who did William Wallace help?
- How did he help them?
- Why do you think William Wallace wanted to help them?
- What do you think God thought of William Wallace helping others?
- Are there people we know that need help?
- How can we help them?
- How can we inspire others to help those in need?
There are many topics to cover in worldview training. One of the most vital topics is developing compassion for others. In so doing, your children will also develop fruits of the Spirit, such as kindness and gentleness. Thus, their Biblical worldview training will result in the kind of life that Paul spoke of:
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others” (Philippians 2:3-4).
