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:
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.
