We are told to do the right thing.

Excerpt from Enjoying Exodus: The Bible in Rhyme  by Marcia Goldlist      

We are told to stand up for what is right, even if it is not what most people are saying. 

Discussion Questions:

  • How would you define the truth?
  • What does it mean to be evil?
  • Is it hard to say what you believe is the truth if most people are saying something else?
  • Why is it hard to say something different from most people?

Creative Thinking:

  • Give five reasons that we want to be the same as everybody else.
  • Give five reasons that we want to be different from everybody else.
  • Give five reasons that someone would do something, or say something evil?

Activities for Homeschooling and Afterschooling:

  • Find some social justice organizations and summarize what they stand for.
  • Interview someone that you think stands up for the truth.
  • Do you think that social justice issues are the same now as they have been in the past? If so why and if not, what makes them different?
  • How do you know if something is evil?
  • If we shouldn’t listen to the majority, why are public opinion polls deemed important?
  • Interview Mr./Mrs. Evil.
  • Create a media campaign to make your peers aware that it is important to do what is right. Use at least three different medias.
  • Are people evil or are their ideas and/or actions evil. Explain.
