This is a simple little game we would play to encourage our children to think on what is true, honest, right, lovely, and of good report as Philippians 4:8 instructs us. ( Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Phil. 4:8)
To do this we would have the kids tell good things about their brothers and sisters. It was great!
We so often focus on the negative- kids and adults both struggle with this!
So, it was such a positive experience to watch as they wanted to be the one to think up the most good things about others.
We played it often. It’s a great way to pass time on road trips or while doing errands or just when your kids need a dose of right thinking.
