This week's FHE lesson topic comes from the Come, Follow Me reading in 1 Corinthians 1-7. Check out this week's Come, Follow Me study ideas on LDS Living for additional resources and suggestions.
“The Saints can accomplish any purpose of the Lord when fully united in righteousness.”
(Henry B. Eyring, “Our Hearts Knit as One,” Ensign or Liahona, November 2008)
“Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10).
Buy a 100-piece or 50-piece puzzle at the store. Have your family separate into three different areas of the room and divide the puzzle pieces between each family member (you don’t have to be exact). Do not show family members the image on the puzzle box or allow them to look at each other's puzzle pieces. Ask family members to guess what image they think the puzzle is depicting.
Then have family members join their pieces together and, still without seeing the image on the puzzle piece box, guess together on what the puzzle might look like. Ask them to start piecing together the puzzle as best they can. (Note: If family members are really struggling to put together the puzzle, consider giving hints or showing them the puzzle piece image as a guide.)
Once the puzzle is completed, ask family members how their original guesses about the look of the puzzle compared to the actual image of the puzzle. How did coming together and seeing all the pieces give them a better idea of the puzzle image? How did working together make it easier to complete the puzzle? Read 1 Corinthians 1:10 and discuss how being united in Christ can help us gain a clearer vision of the gospel and how to walk the path of discipleship.
