I will follow his light and be an example
(Friend Oct 2003, suggestion # 2)


To help the children practice ways to be good examples to others, write situations on candle-shaped pieces of paper, such as:

Draw large pictures of a hill and a bushel and attach them to the wall.
Have the children read Matthew 5:14–16 and discuss what it means to have their lights "shine before men."

Have the children take turns choosing a candle, and ask them to read the situation and decide whether to place the candle on the hill or under the bushel.

Sing songs or hymns about choosing the right.

Give each child a candle-shaped piece of paper and have him or her write one thing that will help his or her light shine.
Bear testimony that we can be a good influence in the world.
