1. When You Were My Age—Share with children some of the rules you had to follow while growing up, whether they’re different from or similar to your current household rules. Then discuss some ways rules are good for us, even when we don’t like to follow them.
2. God’s Grace—While discussing people in the Bible who made bad choices and faced consequences, be sure to emphasize God’s grace, as well. For example, King David suffered greatly after sinning, but he sought—and received—God’s forgiveness.
3. Commandments 2.0—Work together to reword each of God’s Ten Commandments as a loving guideline from a loving God. For example, you may write, “Because I want you to be protected from religions that would mislead you, don’t have any other gods except me.”
