DALTON DISCOVERS THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
“Honor your father and your mother”
“So what if your mom doesn't want you to” said Dalton’s friend,
Aaron. Dalton did not understand that. He always tried to do what his mom and dad told him to do. Sometimes he accidentally did
something he wasn't supposed to, but he could not remember when he did something bad on purpose…no, he didn't think he had ever done that! But Aaron was acting like it was okay.
Dalton did not want Aaron to be mad at him,
but he didn't want his mom and dad to be mad at him either. Oh
what should he do?
“Hey Dalton”, he heard someone say…it was Homer! Oh he was so glad Homer was here, he always seemed to know what the best thing to do was. “Hi Homer!”.........
......Dalton stopped and thought for a minute…..you know; he was
thinking to himself, we talked in Sunday school about how important it was to glorify God. How everything we do can bring smiles or
frowns to God and to our mom and our dad.....
.......“Dalton, hey Dalton…” Aaron was trying to get Dalton to go with him. But Dalton realized he did not want to go with him.
He decided he would ask Aaron to come to
Sunday school with them next Sunday. ....
Spend time discussing with your child what is means to
"Honor your mother and father"
Ask them questions - have them ask questions - making sure there is a clear understanding of what you expect and what God expects. It makes a smoother path to travel for both you and your children.
