2019-10-15Students' sharing at morning assembly - "Beauty of God’s Creation" by 5 Matthew Law Lok Tin
Good morning Principal, teachers and fellow students,
Today, I would like to share with you the Beauty of God’s Creation. First, I think no matter where we go, the beauty of nature is telling us how good God’s creation is. In Shatin, we are lucky to have some natural environment, and we can see some trees, birds and open space for us to relax and to enjoy the fresh air, actually, the beauty of God’s creation is all around us and magical to behold.
Some people like to admire the beautiful scenery and which indeed manifests how good God is and how perfect He is.
In Psalm 95:4-5, it tells us
In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
God, our Heavenly Father, creates this world for us, not just to dot this world with His power, but to provide us with food, resources and the precious water, to keep us alive and to cleanse us from our sins in Baptism. God is always watching over us, giving us what we need in our daily life and be with us. Only if we admire the beauty and wonders of the natural world, it’s not difficult to find the divine nature of God and His love for us. In St. Paul’s letter to the Romans , it tells us:
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Let us immerse ourselves in nature and the love of God with grateful hearts. Thank you.
2019-09-17Students' sharing at morning assembly – Peace and Kindness" by 6 Matthew Fan Lok Sum
Good morning, Sister Lucy, Principal, teachers and fellow schoolmates, I am Fan Lok Sum from 6 Matthew. Today, I am going to talk about the topic of "Peace and Kindness". Before I start my sharing, I would like all of you to think about what the meaning of these two words is.
From my perspective, peace is harmony and respect, while kindness can be interpreted as compassion and love. Both of them are indispensable in our daily lives, helping us to build a beautiful world.
Let me first share my thoughts on peace. I am sure that everyone always wishes that he or she could live in a utopia with no arguments between people. It's, however, certainly not true since unique moral values and pursuits are different. So, how we can discover peace in different areas? Peace is based on listening, communication and respect. Take my experience being the House Captain of St. Helen House last year as an example. Preparing for both the AGM and the Athletic Meets, I learnt to strike a balance by begin open to the different opinions of my partners, so as to accomplish the tasks in the best way. I am a leader, and that's what I do to maintain a harmonious relationship with other members.
And for another word, kindness, remember there's a stunning quote saying, "Kindness is choosing love over hate, light over darkness, compassion over judgement.”
When we realize the pressing issue of global warming and the tropical rainforests in Brazil, we all kindly show our care by donating money to the relevant NGOs in order to restore that enchanted nature, not only because of our empathy but also of our love and care.
Being kind simply means taking the very first step to build a peaceful relationship with someone we barely know, with our small acts, like a little smile or lending a helping hand, can gradually make a great difference to our society.
Last but not least, peace and kindness are the power of love. Only if we learn to embrace the diversity between us, we shall make our place a delightful one to live in.
