We finished our Alphabet Verses last week and our new Family Time theme is the 10 Commandments.
Americans know Big Macs better than Ten Commandments: A survey by Kelton Research found 80 percent of 1,000 respondents could name the burger's primary ingredient -- two all-beef patties -- but less than six in 10 knew the commandment "thou shalt not kill."
Here is our new song for this theme...enjoy!
We practiced a quick and easy method of memorizing the 10 commandments. Below is a video of the first two.
We chose to focus on the first two because they are very similar. We asked the kids to think of the most important thing they would get if they could only grab one thing before the house exploded and everything still in it was destroyed. Josiah picked his Wii (then changed his mind to take his bible, but it was one of those moments when he just wanted to say the 'right' answer). Danny (the kid from down the street) picked his 55" flat screen TV. Alayna picked her Bible. Bibleman videos have really influenced her to love her "scriptures." We tried to explain to them that even if they lose those favorite things that they should be fine with it. The reason is because they love God so much more than those things. That's not the entire meaning of the first commandment but it's as much as we could get across to them at their age tonight.
Stay tuned for more of the ten commandments...
