Angela carried her report card home in her backpack.
After dinner, her mother and grandmother helped her sort through her pack and found her report card. Her mother read its contents and she smiled at her daughter.
“Angie, you did really well in school this semester. I am so proud. But can you tell me what your teacher means here when she says, ‘Angela’s biggest accomplishment has been breaking her bad habit’?”
Angela explained that she had been yelling in class and that her teacher had helped her understand that yelling isn’t a good way to talk to people. “We yell a lot here, Mom. You and Grandma and me. But it’s not the best way. So I am doing my best to stop the yelling cycle.”
Angela’s grandmother and mother exchanged a look and her Mom sighed. “You are so right Angie, and so is your sweet teacher. Maybe Grandma and I can work with you to break this cycle forever!”
Angie was proud to have helped her family, and knew that her teacher’s prayers had worked.
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
God can give us the strength to break our bad habits and help others do the same. How can you help others that you see having bad habits?
