war in heaven

We all followed Jesus in the pre-mortal life. We all fought to keep our agency and be allowed to choose in this life.I used this one in Primary many years ago – First I had the kids count off, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, . . . so that each child was assigned a number 1, 2, or 3 Then I had those with the numbers one and two go to one side of the room and those with the number 3 go to the other side of the room. Ahead of time I had chosen 2 young men to take the parts of Jesus and Lucifer. Then we read scriptures talking about the war in heaven and how one third of the hosts of heaven were lost. I had the kids look across the room at each other and ask themselves if they think it was easy to battle against friends / family members. Then I told the #3 kids to go and join the #1 and #2 kids and explained that all of them had chosen to follow Jesus. How did I know? They were here.
