Theme: We show love to God by obeying Him
Scripture Memory: Review Psalm 100:1-2, then focus on memorizing verse 3a:
- Know (Tap on your head with pointer finger)
- that the LORD is God (Lift both hands upwards).
Catechism Review: Q. How can you glorify God? A. By loving him and doing what he commands.
Love to Obey: Read John 14:15, 21. Before you read, tell your children to listen for what Jesus says we will do if we love Him. Illustrate the lesson by telling your children you’re going to draw a picture for them. My girls love princesses, so that’s what I’ll draw (or at least say that I’ll draw) for them. Ask for their input as you create the masterpiece, but DON’T follow their instructions. In fact, as much as possible, do the opposite of what they requested. When you finish, ask if they liked the way you drew for them. Talk about how following Christ’s instructions shows our love for Him.
Catechism Notebook: Glue your “disobedient masterpiece” on week 3’s notebook page. Give it the caption “Show God love by obeying Him”
