In D&C 112:10 the Lord says, "Be thou humble; and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers." Humility allows us to be ready to be lead, ready to have His will overtake ours. This week's lesson invites your family to study the Christlike attribute of humility.

You will need two seeds of any type. You will also need two pieces of paper. Write the word “humble” at the top of one paper, and write the word “not humble” at the top of the other paper.

Place the papers side by side on a table or on the floor. Place one seed on the “humble” paper, and place the other seed on the “not humble” paper.
Ask the children if the seeds can grow all by themselves, or if there are some other things that the seeds need. Each time the children think of something that the seed needs (soil, sunlight, water, someone to pull weeds, etc.), draw it on the “humble” paper! Explain that the other seed isn’t humble, and it doesn’t think it needs any help to grow. It just says no thanks!
1) Can we learn and grow by ourselves? Or do we need some help from Heavenly Father? (We need help from Heavenly Father, just like the seeds!)
