One of God's rules

One day at school during recess, my friend Melanie and I saw three girls writing their names in the dirt with a stick. So we decided to write our names, too.

After we were done, the other girls came over and used their feet to rub out our names. Melanie said we should do it back to them and cross out their names. But I told her that at Sunday School I'd learned that you shouldn't do something bad to people, even if they did something bad to you. That's one of God's rules.

Melanie said OK. And we went and played something else. I'm grateful that Sunday School teaches me about God and how to obey His rules.
