Just as it is for us, life for children is full of choices and temptations. To do homework or spend an extra hour watching YouTube videos? To ignore a shy newcomer or go out of your way to include him or her? To cheat on a test or risk being grounded for getting a bad grade? To experiment, just this once, with alcohol to impress daring friends or risk being ostracized? To speak up for what you believe or remain silent and let others assume you agree with them? So how do we choose? And how do our choices impact our lives and our relationships with others? How do we find the strength to avoid temptations and make the right choices? How do we help others to make good choices? And where do we find grace and forgiveness when we’ve made the wrong choice?
