Obedience

If Nephi had a theme for his ministry it was this, "Go and do the things which the Lord hat commanded." He stated this same truth over and over again throughout his writings. He knew that obedience to the commandments was the way back to his Father. This week in our video and lesson bundle this same truth is taught.

Play a few rounds of “Simon Says” with the children.


(If you are not familiar with Simon Says, participants must follow the commands preceded with “Simon says” (Simon says touch your ears) and they must ignore the commands given without “Simon says” (Touch your nose). If a participant makes a mistake, he/she is out!)


After playing Simon Says, ask the following discussion questions with the children.


1) If you wanted to win this game, what did you have to do? (Follow directions from Simon)


2) In real life, what do we have to do if we want to be the most happy? (Obey Heavenly Father’s commandments.)

Say: “We are going to watch a video about obeying. There’s a boy who needs to get out of a tunnel before his batteries run out. The boy doesn’t know which way to go to get out of the tunnel. But his dad knows the way and he tells the boy which way to go. Let’s see if the boy chooses to obey his father’s instructions, or if the boy chooses not to obey.”

Discuss the following questions after watching the video:


1) Did the boy choose to obey his Father? (Yes)
