Lesson Learned:  God wants us to be faithful to those we love, especially between mommies and daddies.
Materials Needed: small strip of construction paper, tape, stickers
Bible Verse :
Exodus 20:14
 14 “You shall not commit adultery.”
Talking Points:  God gave people marriage so that they could have families and share their love with one another.  God wanted your mom and dad to get married and have you be their child.  When a man and woman get married they are called husband and wife.  One of His commandments, or rules, is that we stay loyal and faithful to our husband or wife.  This means we don’t lie to them or marry more than one person.  Your mommy and daddy probably wear rings on their fingers to remind them of God’s rule.
Questions:   Are you glad your mommy and daddy got married?  Do you think they love each other? How do they show each other that they love one another?
Activity:   Let the child decorate the strip of paper with stickers.  Tape the ends and let the child wear it like a ring on their finger. 

Song to Sing:

To the tune of “Jingle Bells.”  (From DLKT website)

No other Gods, no idols
Don’t misuse God’s name
Keep the Sabbath holy
That’s God’s special day.  HEY!
Honor your mother and father
Don’t murder lust or steal
No false tales, don’t envy
This is God’s great deal.  HEY!
Prayer:  Thank You, God, for my mom and dad. I am so glad they are married and I am so glad they are my parents.  Amen!
