Theme: Honor our parents
“‘Honor your father and mother’ for this is the first commandment with a promise.” (Eph. 6:1)
Catechism Q&A: Who are our first parents? A. Adam & Eve
Scripture Review: Continue reviewing Psalm 119:9-11.
Royal Treatment: One definition of the word “honor” is “high respect, as for worth, merit, or rank“. To help my kids get a mental grasp on that definition, I’m presenting it as “treating like a king or queen”. We’re going to read Eph. 6:1-3, then will talk about 3 ways royalty is honored:
- People don’t order monarchs around
- People listen when kings or queens speak
- People show gratefulness (whether they feel it or not) to royalty
We’ll do some role playing on how my children should respond to their dad and me. Then we’ll create Daddy a crown and write on it some of the things we appreciate about him!
Notebook: Picture of parent and add crown and/or scepter to it!
