Day #11, Parable of the Ten Virgins

Sorry about the late posting, I selected the wrong time ūüôĀ

Parable of the Ten Virgins, Day 11

To begin the lesson, watch this short video Christ Like Attributes – it’s also found HERE. ¬†It is such a beautiful overview of what we have been learning these last 10 days.

Jesus often taught using familiar objects and situations to teach a spiritual truth; called parables.  The parable of the ten virgins teaches us about the second coming of Jesus Christ and how we can prepare.  
I thought both these lessons were perfect references to teach your children about this parable:
Lesson from Sugardoodle click HERE
Ten Virgins lesson click HERE
Once you’ve gone over the parable, have the family act out the story so it comes to life. ¬†
Now talk about the hidden spiritual truth in this story.  Who are the 10 Virgins?  Who is the Bridegroom?  What is the oil?  What is the marriage?
I liked this music video on youtube depicting people living righteously and putting oil in their lamps.
Have the children cut out the drops of oil and a lamp. (I had to make them colorful, it’s Easter!!) ¬†They can write on each drop of oil what they are doing to prepare for Jesus to come again. ¬†Glue them in your journals. ¬†In the Sugardoodle lesson, there are instructions on how to make this lamp out of a paper plate.
