Let's think about rules and play a game called "I wonder." I'm going to ask you a question that starts with "I wonder" and you can use your imagination and answer the question. In our country, we have a lot of rules about food -- how it has to be made before we buy it and eat it. I wonder what would happen if we didn't have any of those rules. Do you think it would be clean? Taste as good? Would restaurants be as clean? We also have a lot of rules in sports and games. I wonder what would happen if our games didn't have rules? People may not be honest. We wouldn't know how to play. Would it be as fun? What if there wasn’t a driver’s manual? There are tons of rules about how to drive or ride our bikes on the road. I wonder what would happen if we didn't have those rules? A person could drive anywhere. They could stop or turn when they wanted. That could cause crashes all the time!
We have a lot of rules to live by, and most of them are good, and necessary. If we didn't have them, the world would be crazy!
God also gave us some rules to live by. They are called the 10 Commandments and God gave them to Moses and he shared them with us:
~Put God first.
~Worship only Him.
~No bad words.
~Work 6, rest 1.
~Obey your parents.
~Harm no one.
~If it’s not yours, don’t take it.
~Tell the truth.
~Don't be jealous of other people’s stuff.
The Sunday School activities for this week include skits, tower challenges, hopscotch, songs and crafts. The lesson might be about the Ten Commandments but this also God’s top ten list for success! They offer us the ten best ways to live by!
