Scripture

Scripture of the Week for Come Follow Me 10/12

Work on memorizing this scripture during the week for Come Follow Me 10/12: 3 Nephi 24:10

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house; and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of Hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Devotionals for Come Follow Me 10/12

Remember that these are guidelines for you to use in your daily Come, Follow Me 10/12 devotionals!  Please don’t feel as though you have to use every single question, journal entry, or activity.  Just 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 for Come Follow Me 10/12:

  • Start by singing the song together and saying a prayer
  • Read the scripture together, then your family can have a discussion using the questions/comments provided.
  • Copy the journal entries into a spiral notebook.  The child or the parent can write the question at the top, after which the child can write or draw an answer.
  • Have fun together doing the activity as a family!

Modifications for older children for Come, Follow Me 10/12 daily devotionals:

  • 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 for Come Follow Me 10/12
  • Instead of answering the journal entry with a drawing, you can 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.

Monday Devotional

Song

An Angel Came to Joseph Smith (Children’s #86a)

Scripture

3 Nephi 21:1–7 

Discussion

  • These verses are talking about the last days, which is now!
  • Remember how we learned about the Savior saying He had other sheep, and those were the Nephites? The Nephites and the people in Jerusalem were all descendants of Israel.
  • In the last days, the Lord said He would gather all of Israel together. If you aren’t one of Israel’s descendants, then you get adopted into his family when you are baptized and make covenants with the Lord.
  • These verses tell us that the gathering of Israel will begin when the Nephites’ writings are given throughout the world. That’s the Book of Mormon!
  • Those of us who have the Book of Mormon have the responsibility to help gather Israel.
