You Are the Savior’s Hands

Lesson inspired by You are the Saviour's Hands January 2015 Friend Magazine

If you choose, share the story of the statue of Christ without hands below:

For younger children just mention- Since Jesus is not physically here on the earth able to help every person WE must be his hands. If every person on earth chose to help others just as the saviour would, imagine how happy the world would be.

We want Love and Happiness for everyone.

What are some ways we can be Jesus's hands?

This year The Friend has issued the  Give Us a Hand Challenge .
Children can trace around their hand and write on it what service they have done for others.
Even if you don't send a hand in, its a great idea to keep the hands around the house.

Trace around Child's Hand and cut out hand. {Also have extra handprints predone}

Have children think of a service they have done for another and write on the hands.

Fill out lots of handprints and stick on wall/fridge/poster

Try during the month of February to fill out as many hands as possible.

I help my teacher in class
I gave a hug to someone who was sad
I help my mum....
I gave to a charity
I share my toys and make everyone happy

I know that everyday we give service to people all around us.
We should remember what good things we do, and also strive to do more good things.

We should LOVE others by helping them.

Closing Song: Love One Another #136

Closing Prayer: Child


A story is told that during the bombing of a city in World War II, a large statue of Jesus Christ was severely damaged. When the townspeople found the statue among the rubble, they mourned because it had been a symbol of their faith and of God’s presence in their lives.

Experts were able to repair most of the statue, but its hands had been broken so badly that they could not be fixed. The people added on the base of the statue of Jesus Christ a sign with these words: "You are my hands."

When I think of the Savior, I often picture Him with hands outstretched, reaching out to comfort, heal, bless, and love. He loved the humble and the meek and walked among them, ministering to them and offering hope and salvation. This is what He would be doing if He were living among us today. It is what we should be doing as His disciples and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

As we extend our hands and hearts toward others in Christlike love, something wonderful happens to us. Our own spirits grow stronger. We become happier, more peaceful, and more open to the whisperings of the Holy Spirit.
Let us commit to become the Savior’s hands, that others through us may feel His loving embrace.

~ Elder Dieter F Uchtdorf
