1. Scripture: Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, FOLLOW me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
2. Lesson: Who do we follow? (At church, at school, at work, on social media?) The savior gave us the perfect example to follow. Do we follow HIM? How can others see that we Follow HIM? We can also follow the Prophets. Where can we find perfect written instructions for us to FOLLOW? (scriptures, conference talks)
3. Activity: You will be drawing a picture different than the one for which you give oral instructions. Give your family simple instructions to draw a picture. Make sure you tell them No talking or discussing while you’re giving instructions. Don’t follow your own instructions as you draw the example picture.
1. Make a grape size circle in the middle of your paper. 2. Draw pointed triangles all around your circle with the point facing the outside edge of the paper. 3. Draw one small square in the 4 corners of the paper. 4. Write your last name on the bottom edge of the paper. 5. Draw 1 stars inside the circle.
Some will realize you are not drawing the same picture you are describing but they might be unable to finish the picture correctly because they missed the first instructions. Most people will copy the drawing you do as an example instead of listening to your verbal instructions.
Family Discussion: We often hear that “Actions speak louder than words.” Do they? Who might be affected by our example? (siblings, friends, nonmembers, members)
Now, repeat the activity, emphasize they should FOLLOW your verbal instructions. This time they will most likely listen more carefully. How can you relate this activity to how well you follow FOLLOW the Savior? #familyhomeevening #lds #comefollowme #followhim (Tag a friend below or repost to share this FHE!)
