Hi boys and girls Uncle Billy here. Do you always have a good attitude and say things that are encouraging or do you sometimes have a bad attitude and use words which may put others down. I think at times kids and adults both struggle with having a good attitude. In today’s Bible principal story we are going to hear about a young boy who had an attitude problem which his parents dealt with. Here it is.
“Time to get ready for school boys. Drew and Zacky come down for breakfast,” Mrs. Green yelled.
“Time to get up big brother,” Zacky said as he shook his brother.
“Boy you are so much trouble at times,” Drew lectured his little brother.
“Sorry I just don’t want you to be late in getting some of mom’s good cooking or be late in getting to school,” Zacky explained.
“I guess it is just because you are a little dumb 4th grader that you enjoy school. When you get to be a big kid in 5th grade like me you will see that school isn’t always fun.”
Both boys then got dressed and headed downstairs to have some breakfast.
“Mom what is for breakfast?” Zacky asked.
“Ham and eggs,” she answered.
“I love hams and eggs,” Zack replied.
“Not ham and eggs again. I am sick of them,” Drew spoke up.
“Now Drew your mom works hard to cook you boys and me a nice breakfast every morning,” lectured Mr. Green.
“Whatever,” Drew said under his breath.
Drew knew if he wanted to be able to sit in his seat at school without needing a pillow he had better not say that out loud so his dad could hear him.
