FHE Lesson {Wise Man and Foolish Man}

This lesson inspired by what came up in family scripture reading this week
 





Opening Song: Choose the Right Way #160

Opening Prayer:


Lesson:


Share the following Scripture (or just sing the song for really little children)


3 Nephi 14:24-27
Therefore, whoso heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock
  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock.
 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand
 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it.
 
 
What does it mean to be foolish? How are we sometimes like the foolish man?
 
What does it mean to be wise?  How can we be like the wise man?
 
What things are wise decisions that will help us build on a strong foundation?
{list out and leave up to remind kids of wise decisions we make in our homes}
 
 
Activity:
 
Watch Wise Man and Foolish Man Youtube Videos :)
 
 
 
 
 
Build a little lego house or cardboard house and blutak it to a large rock and then sand. Pour water around each and see which house stays standing.
 
Draw Wise and Foolish Houses or colour this colouring in page  or this one
 
Reiterate that things are always better when built on a sure/strong foundation. In our family we try really hard to make sure we have a good solid foundation for our family. A happy family, with kindness and love toward eachother, following rules, having respect, with love for the gospel and Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ we believe is the best foundation for our family to grow and succeed on.
 
Closing Song: Dare to do Right #160
 
Closing Prayer: Child
