Attention Activity

  • Show a set of silverware and ask the sisters to describe their different functions:
    • Fork = stabs the item with an attitude of ?This is mine!?
    • Knife = cuts everything to be a different size or separate it
    • Spoon = gathers small things together

Which kind of love do you want to give??? Lord, make me a spoon!

How can you tell a true disciple of Jesus Christ?? By the way she treats other people!? One way we show the Lord how much we love Him is by serving His children, our brothers and sisters.? When we feel God?s love deep inside our soul, we feel a desire to reach outside ourselves and bless others.? A true understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ compels us to love and serve.

If we want to be like Christ, we need to do as Christ did: serve.? The Savior ministered daily to the needs of those around Him.? When we open our spiritual eyes, we will see many opportunities around us for Christ-like service and love.? Loving and serving our neighbor isn?t always easy, but that great feeling you get afterwards is evidence that you?re doing exactly what the Savior would do!

Additional Ideas

Ask to borrow and bring a pair of shoes of someone in your ward or someone you know who has serious challenges. Display the shoes on an empty table. Ask the girls if they know whose shoes they are. Explain whose shoes they really are. Ask the girls if they would like to wear that person?s shoes for the day and trade places with them.

There is a saying that we cannot judge another till we have walked a mile in his shoes. If you really could trade places with someone for a day, how do you think that would change the way you look at them or treat them?

Christ literally took upon himself your whole life ? every minute of it ? every painful thing, every disadvantage ? he really has walked in your shoes the whole of your life. That is how he is able to totally understand and comfort you.

How can we be more like him? How can we love others the way he does?
