September Sharing Time Week 2

For me, this week is about how we can show respect and worship God. This is done through reverence and I read THIS about reverence and I just love that we show reverence in basically everything that we do. We really have many opportunities in our day to show respect towards our Heavenly Father.

What do these commandments tell us?

1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me -- this means that we to only worship Heavenly Father

2) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image -- this means that we must love Heavenly Father more than anything else that we have, like toys or video games

3) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain -- this means that Heavenly Father is a special person to us and we show respect to Him by only using His name when we are at church, at the temple, asking a question, or saying prayers.  (Be sensitive with this one, family members may not follow this and the children might hear it often.)

4) Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy -- this means that Sundays are the Lord's day, we go to church, spend time with our families and do activities that we wouldn't do on the other days. (This is also a sensitive one, as it is a personal decision for each family. For example, some families may feel it's okay to play outside with family and others may not)

I was hoping to have more for you, but this week escaped me. I hope you can still use this fun cut/paste activity. To supplement this, check out Little LDS Ideas post for this week, it looks fun and easy to put together!
