The Word for February 16: Law

Law

This week in worship Deborah explores the word LAW. Using more Scripture from the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:17-48, we will hear some old (Old Testament) laws and the new ways that Jesus interprets them.  Here are some ideas to explore with your child before, during, and after worship.

During worship

  • Draw a blank tablet for your child. Can they draw something on tabletit that they hear in the Scripture or the sermon? Can they draw someone keeping (or breaking) God’s law?
  • Draw the letters L-A-W vertically. Can your child make more words beginning with those letters that tell about God? (Love? Laughter? Awesome? Wonderful?)
  • Show your young child how to make tally marks. How many times do they hear the word law during the sermon?

Before or after worship…..

  • Talk with your child about the Ten Commandments, God’s original Law. Can you name them all? Click this link for a handy trick with your fingers to remember all ten.
  • The law was given to God’s people as a way to live and love each other, and God. Talk as a family about your own law/rules. What are the most important ways you want to live together as a family? Can you make a list of them together? Take a look at the following pictures for some inspiration.house rules 1
