Participation Story
 Israel Worships a Graven Image
Read the enclosed summary of the childrenof Israel worshipping a graven image, while Moses was away receiving the 10 commandments. Have thechildren hold up their visuals each time that word is mentioned in the story. Each word is mentionedseveral times, so there will be plenty of opportunity for participation.
Even though the Children of Israel had been witness to such great miracles (like the parting of the Red Sea) they were still quick to revert back to their evil/traditional ways when their prophet wasaway. The Ten Commandments are a gift from Heavenly Father meant to be basic guidelines forrighteous living, that even the weakest among us can live.
Enrichment Activities:

Review the
Wickedness Never Was Happiness
use it as an opportunity toshare specific instances of how sin actually decreases your freedom, rather than increasing it as somecritics would suggest. (Drinking alcohol, although possibly fun and exciting for a moment, leads tolosing control of your mental capacities and leading you into morally and physically dangerous situationsyou would never normally consider. Also mention physical sickness, possible addiction, etc. that can alsoresult).
I think it
s extremely important that teens understand that there is an appealing element to mostsin, otherwise it wouldn
t be so rampant. But no matter how appealing it may seem, that there isALWAYS a dark side to it filled with negative consequences (in additional to the harmful spiritual effectsthat result). The commandments were given to us as a basic guideline for righteous living and we will beblessed immeasurably for keeping the commandments.
