Catholic Teaching Focus for this lesson

(God inspired the human authors of the sacred books though he acted in them and by them, it
was as true authors that they consigned to writing whatever he wanted written, and no more.
"The divinely revealed realities, which are contained and presented in the text of Sacred
Scripture, have been written down under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit" To interpret
Scripture correctly, the reader must be attentive to what the human authors truly wanted to affirm
and to what God wanted to reveal to us by their words. In order to discover the sacred authors
intention, the reader must take into account the literary genres in use at that time, and the
modes of feeling, speaking and narrating then current. Catechism 105, 106, 109, 110)

o Christians try to understand teachings about Gods love in the Bible. The more one learns how to
love like God, the better one is enabled to control ones emotions.

o The Bible is full of lessons about how God does what is good for others.

o Proverbs were written in a society where many people could not read nor write and therefore
were sayings with a message/teaching behind it. There are hundreds of proverbs in the Bible
that one can learn from.

o Students will deepen their understanding of praying together.

Aspects of the Human Person

Understanding, developing and responding to emotions.

Prior Knowledge

Students have recently explored emotions; the purpose, effect and creator of emotions and how Jesus
showed love in times of emotion. This lesson is designed to engage students in the Bible, in particular,
proverbs. Students have had some exposure to proverbs during class, however this lesson attempts to
develop a deeper understanding of proverbs for students. Students pray with special intentions on a
regular basis.
In previous years, the students have explored;
o Some emotions in relation to God, such as the love God has for His children and the impact that
emotion has.
o There are many emotions that are derived from a response to something. Students have been
encouraged to respond like Jesus and act like Him through love.
o Some emotions can be more powerful than others. E.g. Love and forgiveness can triumph hate
and anger.
o Emotions can be celebrated through actions
o How to behave in ways that are loving and good through their conscience like Jesus.

Appendix 1: QR Codes to Proverbs.

A wise child is a fathers joy, a foolish child a mothers grief.

A slack hand brings poverty,

but the hand of the diligent brings wealth.

Anyone whose ways are honourable walks secure,

but whoever follows crooked ways is soon unmasked.

Hatred provokes disputes,

but love excuses all offences.

A flood of words is never without fault,

Whoever controls the lips is wise.
The uprightness of the good makes their way straight,
the wicked fall by their own wickedness.

A tittle-tattler lets secrets out,

the trustworthy keeps things hidden.

Whoever loves discipline, loves knowledge,

stupid are those who hate correction.

No one is made secure by wickedness,

but nothing shakes the roots of the upright.
Fools think the way they go is straight,
the wise listens to advice.

Thoughtless words can pierce like a sword,

but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Deceit is in the heart of the schemer,

joy with those who give counsels of peace.

No harm can come to the upright,

but the wicked are swamped by misfortunes.

Lying lips are abhorrent to Yahweh;

dear to him those who make truth their way of life.
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,
whoever mixes with fools will be ruined.

Evil will pursue the sinner,

but good will reward the upright.

Mastery of temper is high proof of intelligence,

a quick temper makes folly worse than ever.

To oppress the weak insults the Creator,

kindness to the needy honours the Creator.

The eyes of Yahweh are everywhere:

observing the wicked and the good.
The way of the lazy is like a thorny hedge,
the path of the honest is a broad highway.

Pride goes before destruction,

a haughty spirit before a fall.

Better be humble with the poor

than share the booty with the proud.

Whoever listens closely to the word finds happiness;

whoever trusts Yahweh is blessed.
