I am Responsible… -Nehemiah 9 and 10
I looked at my watch and saw that the teachers should be here any second to collect their students from lunch. The students were all ready and lined up to go. At least I thought they were, until I saw a first grade boy using his water bottle to spray students in the other line. I headed in his direction, threw away the bottle and set the boy down. As I tried to find out why he was spraying everyone with water, he kept babbling about someone who was hitting him and bothering him. I tried to focus on the problem I had seen but to no avail. He could not see his wrong doing because he was blaming his circumstances and others instead of himself. I really couldn’t see how his spraying other people with water was someone else’s fault and actually told him so. With a warning to him that next time we would be seeing the principal, I headed back to the front of the line.
