FHE: Hands are for hugging–not hurting

Scripture of the Week
“Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart;”
Psalms 24:3-4

Lesson Plan
Sing “I Have Two Little Hands” (CS, 272).

I have two little hands, folded snugly and tight.
They are tiny and weak, yet they know what is right.

During all the long hours till daylight is through,

There is plenty indeed for my two hands to do.

Ask “What can your two hands do?” Answers will vary (eat, draw, clap, play, etc).

Show the picture on p. 74 in Behold Your Little Ones: Nursery Manual (children playing nicely together). Discuss how they are using their hands to share and play nicely together.

Ask “What did Jesus use his two hands to do?”. Show pictures like the following to illustrate.

Jesus used his hands to teach.
Jesus used his hands to heal.
Jesus used his hands to comfort.
Jesus used his hands to pray.

Teach that Jesus wants us to use our hands to do good things and follow him.

Read scripture: Psalms 24:3-4.
