Scripture: “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (1 Cor. 3:16–17
“We live in a world that is filled with filth and sleaze, a world that reeks of evil. It is all around us. It is on the television screen. It is at the movies. It is in the popular literature. It is on the Internet. You can’t afford to watch it, my dear friends. You cannot afford to let that filthy poison touch you. Stay away from it. Avoid it.” President Gordon B. Hinckley 2001
Lesson: For this lesson, you can either print off, or show on your computer the following pictures, or find your own similar photos.
Begin by asking your children what they see in each photo. What message is it telling them?
Now let the discussions flow. Here are a few questions I asked my kids to help get them thinking, but use what works best for your family
- Why should we clean our homes? Is it important?
- What are these kids doing? Does it look fun? Do you think they need to get a bath after? What if they stay covered in mud?
- Should we write on our bodies? Why? At this point it would be great to reiterate the scripture above – our bodies are a temple.
Closing song: Fun to Do
Children’s Hymnbook pg 253
Refreshments: Popcorn or Fresh Fruit and Veggies. A reminder to put Clean things into our bodies as well.
Stay tuned this month for the Lesson 6: Be Prayerful
