In order to keep Christ the focus, we have tried out many ways to help our children attend and commit to memory what they learn on Sunday. I created this sheet for that purpose. If I do say so, it has worked very well. This week, I heard last Sunday's sermon referenced at least 3 times by the kids. For example:
When I set out cinnamon raisin biscuits for breakfast, Daniel reached to grab the biggest one. Isaac said: Uh uh, Daniel, remember what Pastor Jesse taught us? Treat others the way you want to be treated. (Matt. 7:12) You shouldn't get the biggest biscuit. You should get the smallest!
At which point I quoted the scripture Pastor taught a couple weeks ago: "How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is a log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye." (Matt. 7:4-5)
