Denunciation of the Scribes and Pharisees
Introduction: Blow up a balloon and tie it off. Hold it up in the air for the students to see. Say: Being prideful is a sin. Prideful is thinking you are more important than others. Do not let your head swell up with pride like this balloon. Sooner of later something will happen and you will fall (let the balloon fall to the floor). Remember what Jesus said, “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” Matthew 23:12
Directions: Divide the class into pairs. Give each pair of students an inflated balloon that you have blown up and tied off. Have the students try to pat the balloon softly back and forth as many times as they can without it touching the ground. The students continue trying to increase the number of times they pat it back and forth. Younger students can sit on the floor and pat the balloon softly back and forth. Older students can use their heads, knees, feet, etc. instead of their hands to pat the balloon back and forth.
The Catholic Toolbox- 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.
