Bluebirds talked about the meaning of being fair and thought of situations and examples of what was fair and unfair, both in school and in the world.
Then children then heard the story of Jacob and Esau from the Bible and watched a cartoon version too! Bluebirds learnt that Esau was the first-born and should have had the birth right but Jacob seemed to trick Isaac, their father, into blessing him with this right instead. In terms of Christian history Jacob went on to be known as Israel and was father to the nation, but in human terms, Esau was treated unfairly. Christians believe that God’s plans are perfect. God allowed Jacob to become first, which means it must be the best and right thing.
Bluebirds began to understand that God’s view of fairness and justness is greater and longer lasting than our human viewpoint.
