The Choice is Right ST

Sharing time- The Choice is Right

Lesson on theme: I Follow Heavenly Father’s Plan When I Choose the Right

What does this shield mean? Who has a CTR ring? Who doesn’t have one? You may be able to get one during this lesson if you don’t have one. For those of you that do have a ring, what does the CTR stand for? Choose the right! It means that when you are faced with something at home, school or anywhere, you decide to do what Jesus would do in that case. We need to ask a very important question when we do anything. Would Jesus Do this? Or What would Jesus do in this case. You are all lucky because you have been taught in Primary to always do the right thing. Not all children have been taught this important lesson. So we make choices everyday about the things we do. Some choices are not as important as others. What we decide to have for breakfast isn’t as important as deciding if we are going to smoke a cigeratte. Before we came to this earth we made a choice. In fact, we are all on this earth because we chose the right. We chose to follow Heavenly Father’s plan instead of Lucifer’s or as we know him now Satan’s plan. Heavenly Father prepared a plan to help us become like him and gave us agency, which is the ability to choose and act for ourselves. Satan wanted to take away our agency and force us to act a certain way. Those that chose the wrong and followed Lucifer didn’t get to come to earth, were denied bodies and don’t get to live with Heavenly Father again. They were cast out. Even though Satan and his followers didn’t receive bodies, they are allowed to tempt us to sin and help us choose the wrong.

We need to always be on guard and make sure that we choose the right and help Heavenly Father’s children also choose the right because Satan wants us to be miserable like he is. Heavenly Father and Jesus want us to be happy and by choosing the right we will be. Jesus came to this earth and chose the right in everything he did. He chose the right when he taught the gospel to people, was baptized even though he was perfect and when he gave that perfect life for us so that Heavenly Father’s plan would work. Sometimes it easy to choose the right and sometimes it is hard. The commandment of not killing is easier to keep than not lying. Tell me a way that we can choose the right, (use beanbag) We need to keep the word or wisdom ( or not harming our bodies), obey our parents and teachers, be kind to all, keep the gospel standards like dressing modestly, speaking nice words, be honest or tell the truth, keep our promises, keep the Sabbath day holy, pay our tithing, listen to uplifting music and read good books, and prepare ourselves to go to the temple or in other words, keep the gospel standards

Now that you have learned how important it is to choose the right we are going to play a game. It is taken from a popular game show and I thought we could change it a bit. We will play the Choice is Right. Reverent children will have the opportunity to be contestants and win fabulous prizes! They aren’t that fabulous but there still are prizes! I have a punch board that has questions about choosing the right, some from the lesson and some from past lessons. The blue side are easier questions and the white side are harder questions. The senior primary must punch on the white side. I will read the question and if you choose the right answer (JR primary may use a teacher’s help) you will get a small prize that may be enjoyed after Primary.
