Sharing Time Idea based from April 2007 sharing time ideas

Jesus Christ came into the world to do the will of the
Father

This is for the 1st principle for April, which we are doing the 2nd Sunday so that the resurrection principle can be done on Easter.

Draw 2 big circles on the chalkboard. Inside one put My Will and inside the other one put God’s Will. Explain what “will” means. Come up with some things to write down inside of “My Will” that may not be “God’s Will” for me, such as: watching TV too much, staying in bed on Sunday and not going to church, being unkind to someone, fighting with siblings, etc.

Then discuss what God’s will is for us. Look up scriptures that tell us God’s will.

Present 2 hula hoops. Use one for God’s will and one for my will. let the children stand inside the god’s will hula hoop to represent a commandment or scripture that contains His will for us.

Show them how we can align our will with God’s.

Explain how Jesus came to earth to do God’s will and that he is the perfect example of the two hula hoops being in perfect alignment. Have someone hold Christ’s picture in the middle of the 2 aligned hula hoops. Maybe, if you have time, look up the scriptures that explain how Jesus came to do the Father’s will.

Just wanted to “Share”! lol….
