Lesson Learned:  Do not make idols.

Materials Needed:  1 red piece of construction paper, markers
Bible Verse :
Exodus 20:4-6
 4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
Talking Points:  We learned yesterday that there is only one God.  God does not want us to worship other things like rocks or statues or other people. If we act like something else is like God that is called an idol.   God is the only one we should pray to and worship.  It makes Him angry when we act like someone or something else is like Him.
Questions:  How many Gods are there? What is an idol?  Does God like it when we act like someone or something else is as great as He is? 
Activity:   On a red piece of construction paper, cut out a “no” symbol.  Hold it in front of various objects your child likes and ask the child, “Is this more important than God?”

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:  Dear Lord, help us to remember and obey Your rules. You are the only God and You alone are worthy of ours prayers and worship! Amen!
