Primary 7, Lesson 2

Jesus Christ Volunteered to Be Our Savior
This is one of my favorite stories about Jesus Christ and all He did for us, it’s just a great analogy.
(Story included in download as a handout to glue in notebooks)

As I finished washing the dishes, I glanced out the window and saw my 
eight-year-old brother dangling a long pole in the swimming pool. His 
tangled brown hair hung in his eyes, and his clothes were splashed with 
water. He always managed to avoid helping with the chores, and today was 
no different. I watched as he carefully steadied the pole in the water, lifted it, 
and tapped it on the concrete deck.
“What’s he doing?” I wondered. I decided to go outside and see what
 time-wasting activity had kept him from helping me.
“What are you doing, Ben?” I asked as I walked over to where he stood.
“Saving bees,” he replied. I could now see that each time he steadied the pole, 
it was beneath a bee. He then lifted the bee out of the water and placed it on 
the warm concrete to let the bee dry its wings and fly away.
“But some of them won’t hold on,” he continued. “I try to save them, but they
 just keep trying to swim and won’t grab the pole.”
“Great,” I thought. “One less bee to sting me.” I began walking back toward
 the house, determined to waste no more of my time.
Then Ben spoke again. “It’s like Jesus,” he said.
I stopped and walked back to my little brother. “What do you mean?” I asked, 
confused by that comparison.
“I try to save the bees from drowning, but they have to choose to grab the pole.
 I can’t force them,” he explained. “And that’s like Jesus and us. He wants to 
save us, but we have to choose to follow Him and accept the Atonement. Hed
 can’t force us.” And with that simple analogy, Ben went back to saving the bees.

Included in the PDF download is a printout for the scripture John 15:13, full sheet questions, Saving the Bees story(sheet of 4) and the Plan presented handout (sheet of 4). The sticker label sheet is a Word doc and can be downloaded right above the preview for the full sheet questions.

Find a pattern

Try to identify patterns in the scriptures that can help your students overcome challenges. Look for words that repeat, phrases that describe a behavior or character trait, or doctrine, principle. EXAMPLE During our discussion of Matthew 4, I had my students explain Jesus’ three temptations to the class. I listed them on the board. Then we wrote under each how Jesus rebuked Satan: “It is written….” The kids were able…
