7th graders can are often more interested in social engagements than in serving others humbly. Though they are not entirely against serving, they may not even think to put others first. Help identify opportunities for your protege to serve and care for other people! It is important to teach them to look for opportunities to serve by making themselves available and by giving them opportunities to exercise their gifts.
–If there is need you are aware of at your church, ask if you and your protege can do something together to meet that need
–During the breaks if there are any VBS s going on, ask about serving together during that time
–If your extended family has a project that you can work on together, use that as an opportunity to show them how they can serve their family
