Opening Activity

  • Have a picture of parents.
  • Can anyone guess who are in this picture? It is my parents. I love my parents very much and I know that they like to hear me say, “Mom and dad I love you!” Do you think your parents like to hear you tell her that you love them? Of course they do! But do you know what your parents like even more? They like for you to show them that you love them.

Bible Story

  • How can you show your parents that you love them? Well, I made up a list of what I think might be the top ten ways to show your parents that you love them.
  1. Make your bed
  2. Tidying up your room
  3. Mopping the house
  4. Take out the trash
  5. Help to cook supper
  6. Set the table
  7. Wash the dishes
  8. Don’t fight with your brothers or sisters
  9. Give them a gift that you made yourself.
  10. Obey them when they tell you to do something.
  • Do remember, your mom and dad like to hear you say, “I love you,” but they like it even more when you show them that you love them.
  • Do you love Jesus? I’m sure you do. Do you think Jesus likes to hear you say, “I love you?” I know He does. But he likes it even better when you show Him that you love Him. How do you do that? He told us how. He said, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teachings.” The Bible is full of things that Jesus taught us. You show him that you love him by obeying his teaching.
  • Today, don’t forget to tell your mom and dad that you love them, but more important, show them that you love them.
