I Will Follow You

Activity Objective

To reinforce with the children how they can follow Jesus by obeying the Ten Commandments and sharing with others

Lesson Outcome

The children will relate their responses to practical situations in everyday living to following the Commandments and taking the next step.


The Ten Commandments posted for the children to see

Situations for the children to respond to that relate to different Commandments


  • Tell the children that they will be doing an activity that will help them see how they can follow Jesus and keep the Commandments in their everyday lives.
  • Invite the children to join you in a gathering place where they can see the Ten Commandments that you have posted.
  • Present everyday situations (see examples below) to the children and ask them to respond by telling what they would do to follow Jesus, what Commandment their response relates to, and to add what they could do to take the next step.

Use these or similar situations:

You find just the kind of soccer ball you've been wanting in a neighbor's yard, and you're pretty sure you know whose it is.

Your dad told you to help your mom clean the basement, but your friends are playing ball down the street.

Your teacher asks if you added your pictures to the class mural, and you didn't feel like doing them last night.

After discussing several situations, conclude by reminding the children to live their lives by obeying the Ten Commandments and sharing with others.
