Praise to the Man

Lesson

  • Priesthood
    • The priesthood is Heavenly Father’s Power.
    • He gives it to his children to do his work and miracles.
  • Priesthood Keys
    • He gives us keys so we can use his power. Like we have keys to our cars and house that other’s can use.
    • The Prophet has all the keys and he gives some of them to other people so they can all do the work.
    • Jesus gave the apostles the keys. Matthew 16:13–19
    • Joseph Smith received them as well.

Activity

Get 5 or 6 keys and have each child pick one or more to find the lock that it matches.

Devotionals

Remember that these are guidelines for you to use!  Don’t feel as though you have to use every single question, journal entry, or activity.  Make sure you look at the activity in advance so you can gather any materials they may require.

Here is a general outline for each devotional:

  • Start by singing the song together and saying a prayer
  • Read the scripture together, and then have a discussion about it using the questions/comments provided
  • Take a few minutes to trace the journal entry question and draw a picture of the answer
    • To get the full-size journal entry, just click on the picture and print
  • Have fun together with the activity!

Modifications for older children:

  • Explore the footnotes for each of the scriptures listed
  • Ask additional discussion questions found in the Personal Study section of Come, Follow Me – For Individuals and Families
  • Instead of printing the journal entry and answering it with a drawing, create a study journal (a simple spiral notebook will work) to answer the question with a few sentences or paragraphs, depending on the child’s age.
