Invite the class to taste a store bought cookie like Chips Ahoy.? Then, pass out homemade chocolate chip cookies for everyone to taste.? Now, ask the girls to compare the two.? Which one tasted more fresh?? Which one was healthier?? Was there a difference in price?? Assuming the homemade cookie tasted better, ask which cookie took more effort?? Did the work of baking your own cookie pay off?? What was the reward?
We are commanded to work and take care of our families.? That?s what Heavenly Father does today!? Work gives us purpose and helps us provide for our wants and needs.?? Doing our best in work is a matter of integrity, instilling an attitude of honor in all that we do.? As mothers, we need to teach our children to work and not rely on others for everything.? In order to learn to accept responsibility, children need to see us work, work beside us, and learn to work alone.? ?Idleness is contrary to the gospel.
