Repentance FHE lesson by Lara Goold
Ben the Peanut Butter Boy Learns about Repentance
This is Ben. One day Ben’s mother told hi
m to take the garbage cans out to the curb so the garbage man could empty
them, and to please remember to put the lids on tightly to make sure the dogs didn’t get into the trash. Ben took the cansout, but ran off to play with his friends…never stopping t
o put the lids on tightly. Later, when Ben came home, he foundpapers, rotten food, and other trash all over the yard. How do you think Ben felt?Because he had disobeyed, Ben felt unhappy. He knew that by doing something wrong it was as if he had dirtied hisspirit.
(Smear some peanut butter on the picture of Ben)
Ben tried to help his mother around the house and be nice to his brothers and sisters, but sometimes it was hard. One timehe and his brother both wanted to play with the same toy. They yelled at each other and hit each other. Ben won becausehe was bigger, but he had hit his brother and hurt his arm. What did Ben do that was wrong?
What do you think happened to Ben’s spirit when he did this? (
Smear some more peanut butter 
)Ben left school late and as he was leaving he noticed how cold it was getting. He saw a scarf hanging by the door. Heknew it was not his, but it would sure keep him warm until he walked home, so he took the scarf thinking he would returnit the next day. What did Ben do that was wrong? How did he feel now? (
Smear more peanut butter 
)The next morning Ben was hurrying to school and forgot to take the scarf with him back to school. The teacher told theclass that a scarf that belonged to one of the children was missing and asked if anyone knew where it was. Ben felt badthat he had taken the scarf and had forgotten to return it, but he did not say a word. After the other children left, theteacher asked Ben if he had seen the scarf, but Ben did not want to anyone to know what he had done, so he told her hehad not seen it. How did Ben just make his problem bigger? How was he feeling now? (
Smear more peanut butter
