Let's talk about TEASING.

Whenever someone teases you, you probably feel frustrated, embarrassed, and "put down."

When someone teases you, you may get upset and become angry.

teasing

People who tease often enjoy frustrating and embarrassing others.

They enjoy upsetting others.

Thus, you please the person who is teasing you when you become frustrated or upset.

If you want someone to stop teasing you, you must not become frustrated. You must not get embarrassed or become upset.

To make sure that you do not do these things, you must ignore the people who are teasing you. Do not pay attention to what they are saying.

If it is hard for you to ignore them, walk away from them. Do not stay around them while they are teasing you.

It is important to treat other people the way you want to be treated.

If you do not like it when other people tease you, you should not tease other people.

A Bible example of TEASING

God had promised Abraham that he would be the father of a great nation. But he and his wife Sarah were getting very old and no baby had been born to them.

God had promised Abraham

So Abraham had a baby with Sarah's servant girl, Hagar. He was named Ishmael.

He was named Ishmael

But Ishmael was not the son whom God had promised to Abraham. God's promise was that Abraham would have a son with his wife Sarah. And this miracle baby was born when Abraham was 100 years old! His name was Isaac.

this miracle baby was born when Abraham was 100 years old

The two boys grew up in the same household, but Ishmael was jealous of his younger half-brother Isaac. The Bible tells us (Galatians 4:29) that Ishmael constantly teased, mocked and laughed at Isaac.

Ishmael constantly teased

But Isaac, whom the Bible calls "the son of promise", grew up, got married, and had a son named Jacob whose named God changed to "Israel"...and so began the nation God had promised.
