A Witness Against My Children - A Bible Lesson

Acts 2:28

Acts 2:28 "Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance."

When my children were very young, I wrote Sabbath Studies for a small publication. I want to share one with you today. Here is a quick version of how the lesson goes:

1. Open to Exodus 20 verses 1 - 17. These are the Ten Commandments. Read them to the children without explaining them.

2. Go over what each verse means.

3. The children should neatly copy down verses 3 to 17 in their notebooks.

4. Have each child sign their name on their paper.

5. Once they are all finished, read the following verse to them:

Deuteronomy 31:26 “Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.”

Mother could then say something like this: “So too, my children, is what you just learned. It shall be in your notebooks as a witness against you if you will not obey the words of God’s law.”

Just wait and see the looks on their faces when you do this lesson!!! (smiles)
