I LOVE this Bright Ideas! And shows just how we can be a member missionary!
For this lesson, play a game of flashlight tag!
Share the scripture Matthew 5:16
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven"
Bring in a flashlight and play some "tag" with questions about how we can be a missionary by being an example to those around us. Shine the light on someone to share how by our example we are being a missionary. Then let the child you picked have a turn to "tag" someone.
Here's some examples:
We are a missionary and are examples
in our conversations with others by having clean language and being careful not to offend others.
We can help others who are alone or sick and lift their spirits.
We can be kind and easy to forgive others and be grateful.
We can dress modestly.
We obey the Word of Wisdom
Every day there are opportunities to shine our light. The world is moving further away from Heavenly Father's commandments, this will make us stand out even more giving us more chances to be missionaries.
And we just had the missionaries over for dinner and they shared this video with us and I thought it was PERFECT for teaching us about being a missionary just by our examples and being a friend.
