Hatred has no place in the Gospel

Invite the students to deface the picture of the disliked person. (throw darts, cut with a knife, punch nails into, scribble on with marker, etc.) After the students are finished remove the top picture to reveal the defaced picture of Christ or a reflective, mirrored surface (when we treat others unkindly, we destroy ourselves). Scriptures to discuss: Matthew 25:40: “…Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Matthew 7:12: “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” D&C 64:10: “I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men.” You can download printable pictures of the Savior from the Gospel Art picture kit.
