To illustrate why repentance is important.
Equipment: A doormat.
Lesson presentation and application:
Display the doormat, and point out that it is put in front of the door to provide those who enter the opportunity to wipe the dirt and debris from their feet so that they will not soil the inside of the home.
Explain that Heavenly Father has also place a doormat outside his home. It is known as repentance. Repentance enables us to remove the things from our lives that are not clean. Explain further that unless we cleanse our lives of such debris, we will not be allowed into our Father's house.
