Question and Answer

July 2011 Dear Parents,

Today, we learned about the ten commandments and that sometimes people think they are Christians just because they have not broken any of the commandments. But using the name of God in the wrong way, wanting what someone else has, not showing respect for parents, or lying, are all breaking one of the commandments. Unfortunately everyone has failed one time or another.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity: Get two Bibles, and turn to Exodus 20:1-17. Call out a number between one and ten, and have a race with your child to read the scriptures to find what commandment corresponds to that number. For example, you call out the number 4, and find the 4th commandment in sequence is: Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. After a while, both of you should be able to do this without the aid of the Bible. Be sure to let your child win a few times. Daily Prayer: Dear God, You are the only true God, and I worship and adore You. Thank You Lord for giving Your commandments to help teach me and guide me every day of my life. I especially thank You for Jesus, who offers me forgiveness for when I do stray from keeping all of Your commands, and sin against You. Amen. There are many ways of how we could support our children in living a meaningful life. We hope and pray that our little ways of bringing our children to God through these activities will help them become committed and mature Christians. May we continue to work together in bringing God’s plan to your children. May our Strong God continue to bless you and your family.

In Christ through Mary, The KFL Team
