Pride (file folder game)

Pride File Folder Game: Land on a space that says PRIDE and identify whether the situation is about pride or being humble. Land on a Peacock picture you tell about a time you were full of pride. Land on a Humble Pie picture you must tell about a time you were humble.

Introduction: Write PRIDE on the board. Say: Pride is a feeling of superiority. This haughty attitude is shown by someone who believes they are greater than, more important, more deserving, or more qualified than anyone else. This arrogance deceives us and tries to make us believe that we do not need God or others and we only need ourselves. Another face of pride is self-righteousness. Self righteousness is setting oneself above others and letting everyone know that they are better than others. It is the belief that says, “My way is right and no other way is right.”

Pride hardens the mind and refuses to hear the wisdom of anyone. It closes us off from others and from God; it rejects all other wisdom. This closed mindedness brings consequences. Rejecting God’s help and direction hinders our spiritual growth, making us less useful to Him. Pride blackens the soul and if it goes unchecked, it can lead to the hardening of the heart that condemns those who refuse to accept anything greater than them.

This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.

My files are huge so to keep them free I post all my games at The Catholic Toolbox Games Yahoo Group
