In a new, animated video published on the Gospel for Kids YouTube channel, a young girl named Sophia must choose what to do when a peer uses bad words on the school bus.
“I always want to stand up for what I feel is right, but when I did, it only seemed to make it worse,” Sophia tells her grandmother after returning home from school one day. A boy named Tyler had said a bad word on the bus, and when she kindly asked him to stop, he made fun of her.
Sophia’s grandmother helps her understand that Sophia can’t control the actions of others and encourages her to pray for help to find another solution. Not only does Sophia find a way to not give into his taunting, she also finds a way to be his friend.
