Religious Study and Ethincs on Seven Sacrements, Prayer and Self-development

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

RS Assessment The Seven Sacraments The Seven Sacraments are vitally important in our life. They signify the presence of God, which is sacrificing and love-building. Jesus is the greatest Sacrament. The Seven Sacraments show that God is always with us when we need help. Confirmation is done when we felt uncertain, and we can then be confirmed and make sure of what we believe. When we did wrongly, God is always beside and forgive us through Reconciliation. When we have to decide our future style of life, God will help us to decide through Matrimony or Holy Orders. People will naturally die and God will comfort and strengthen us through Anoiting of the Sick when we feel weak and hopeless towards life. These Seven Sacraments symbolizes that God will always help us. Among those seven sacraments, I think Baptism is the most influencing to me. After baptized, we are all God's children. ...read more.

Middle

We communicate with our friends by direct contact, telephone, or via other ways. We communicate with God with only one way---praying. God will have His own plan; He will listen to our prayers and give appropriate responds to us. Prayers can calm us down, soothe us. During our difficult and doubtful times, prayers for help from God will be listened and we will feel a lot better. When we want something from God, prayers can help us. God would help anyone who is in need, and those whose needs are for good intentions. Among different kinds of prayers, I think Thanksgiving Prayers is the most substantial one. God gives us a lot of blessings once we are born, we should always appreciate that. Sometimes, people don't realize that they are living a blissful life, and feel discontented. However, God has given us so many blessings that we aren't able to notice all of them. ...read more.

Conclusion

God created us and He wants us to understand everyone is unique and everyone should pay more attention on their own internal qualities instead of external appearances. However, not all people see us in a good way; they may have negative comments on us. Others comments and scripts are not the most important, the most important are how we see ourselves. Our self-image is the most important. We will live a happy life if we see ourselves in a positive way. Therefore, I have learnt that I should see myself in a positive way no matter what happens. During difficult times, if we think ourselves pessimistically, then no one could help us because we are unwilling to take the first step---being optimistic. With an optimistic heart, everything will be much easier to solve. God will only help those who treasure His gifts and blessings, and those who make good use of his gifts. Everyone won't be perfect at every area, but everyone must have their strengths and talents. God will provide help for us if we see ourselves optimistically and treasure his gifts---develop our strength. ...read more.
