LESSON HELPS:

Choosing Charity : That Good Part by Bonnie D. Parkin
Our new holiday tradition
Teaching the Importance of Love and Charity:  Get a hold of eight cups that fit into each other. The multicolored toddler cups will do. Then go to 2 Peter 1: 5 - 7 and label each cup with each thing Paul adds. Start with faith as the biggest cup and label each successive cup all the way to charity. There should be 8 cups and the smallest cup should be labeled charity. Next, go to 1 Corinthians 13:4 and get the 16 things that make charity. Label Popsicle sticks with each one thing and place them in the charity cup on top. A little flower glued to the top of each Popsicle stick makes for a nice flower arrangement. They look nice and show a simple way to go from faith to charity. Hey! maybe even back again. I make them according to a rainbow color arrangement. (Credit: Applesauce Kids)
