This Family Home Evening Idea is based off the talk given by Elder Ulisses Soares in the October 2013 General Conference.... found HERE.
Story of Brother Mahlangu- show picture
Scriptures: Matthew 11:29 and 2 Timothy 2:24-26
Activity: Cut up the squares with words that may or may not describe what it means to have meekness. Have family draw squares out of a paper bag and then glue to the lamb/meekness sheet if the words do describe meekness! If not, toss them in the trash!
Song: Jesus Once was a Little Child (CS pg. 55) Verse 1
How was the Savior Meek? Hold up a picture of Him on the cross.
Quote from talk: "Even after the most intense physical suffering, the Lord turned to His Father and spoke from the bottom of His meek and humble heart: "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." Christ faced extreme physical and spiritual suffering, giving us the opportunity to change our spiritual character and become meek like Him."
Have each member of the family make a GOAL of something they can do throughout the week to be more meek.
