Lesson 38 – I Can Be Pure and Righteous CTR-B, Ages 4-7
Use For: Primary Lesson, Family Home Evening, Sharing Time
TO FIND LESSON: Present Lesson 38 – Primary 3 Manual – CTR-A: I Can Be Pure and Righteous.
OBJECTIVE: The lesson helps children desire to be pure and righteous. Review the teacher testimony (p. 189) in the manual for which the following activity illustrates.
ACTIVITY: Doorknob Sign
Children can hang this sign on their door to remind them each day to “think what Jesus would think, say what Jesus would say, and do what Jesus would do.” Tell children that we love Jesus because He is our hero. He saved us from death and made it possible for us to repent of our sins and be forgiven. Because of His love for us, we can show love to Him by being pure and righteous like Jesus. We can follow His example. We can ask before each choice: WWJD (“What Would Jesus Do?”).

More Lesson Ideas:
• Jesus at the Door (show picture) where Jesus is knocking at the door and there is no door handle so He can’t let Himself in. We are the ones to open the door and let Jesus into our life. This ties into free agency – where Jesus wanted us to be free to choose. When we choose to follow Jesus we are Choosing the Right (like the CTR rings symbolize).
