Sunday School


There is one instance that I can think of that continued to help build my sense of morality and it was made as a agreement so that I could play football. From the time I was little my mother made me go to church. When I was really young I enjoyed church because I only had to sit though the first couple minutes and then I was allowed to go with the other kids and play in the nursery. As I got older though church started to get more demanding on me. I can remember it like it was yesterday. I was going into the 3rd grade and just talked my parents into letting me play football. Getting on to the gridiron came with a price though.¬† One of the agreements that was made, specifically by my mother, was that I would be required to start going to Sunday school every week before church. Sunday school helped me better understand the Bible, Christianity, and consisted of a lot of arts and crafts, but it was one of the last things that I wanted to do as a hyper youngster. As the years went on I was still required to go to both Sunday school and church and somewhere in my high school days I made an agreement¬† with my mom that I would just go to church every other week. While going to Sunday school and church was not something that I particularly looked forward to it definitely helped me build a strong moral foundation. It also made my mom and grandma happy.¬† I don’t necessarily agree with everything that I learned from Sunday school and church. I do believe in a higher power, but questioning things are how we develop as human beings, which goes against some aspects of church. Some of the most important things that I learned were the little things like treating others like you would like to be treated, lending a helping hand to those in need, being thankful for what you have, and how talking to old people can not only make their day, but also bring a smile to your face.
