Beware of Pride (Come Follow Me Lesson for Kids: April 1-7)

When we acquire worldly things we might be tempted to boast or be prideful because of what we have obtained. And if we don't have a lot, we might be tempted to put too much emphasis on coveting what others have or pursuing those worldly things to gratify our pride.

This week's Come Follow Me lesson will help your children learn to soften their hearts, to consider the needs of others (sharing), and to "seek ye first the Kingdom of God."

Ask for two volunteers and invite them to stand in front of the room and hold out their hands. Tell them that you are going to blow some bubbles for ten seconds, and they must try to catch and see how many bubbles they can keep. After the activity, invite the volunteers to return to their seat and ask the following questions:

1) Let’s check and see how our volunteers did! How many bubbles do they still have? (None! They


2) How long did the bubbles last? (Not very long!)

These bubbles represent worldly riches. It might seem like these things make us happy for

a moment, but the happiness doesn’t last very long. They always make us want more and more, and we are never satisfied.

Heavenly Father wants to give us eternal riches! Eternal riches are the things that have lasting

value like righteousness, knowledge, love, and faith. And we must look to Heavenly Father to find those treasures!

Instruct children to color the ducks and cut them out. Then color the oats and cut them out too. Cut slits in the beak of each duck so that you can slide a paper “oat” in the duck’s mouth. Invite the children to practice thinking of others by giving their oats freely to the ducks.
