October: Becoming More Christlike

becomingmorechristlikeSS

“Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.” (Moroni 10:32)

How would the Savior’s teachings have been different if he hadn’t had love for those He taught?
How have you been influenced by a teacher who showed love to you?
Find an example of the effect love has in teaching in the scriptures. What did you learn that can be applied to your teaching? What jumped out to you? What inspired you?

What is your favorite parable the Savior taught? Have the class find it and share it. Why do you like that parable? What does it inspire you to do after reading it? How can you apply it to yourself? Why do you think the Savior used the parable to teach that principle?

Why did the Savior teach in parables?

How do prophets and apostles teach in parables today? Why do you think telling stories is a powerful way to teach?

An object lesson would be great to use for this lesson to teach them that objects and parables teach everyone different things. Bring to class several everyday objects, such as soap, coins, keys, rocks, or food. Invite the youth to select an object and teach a gospel principle using that object. Then have the class find an example of when Jesus referred to an object to teach a lesson.

Find examples of how the Savior asked questions to teach something. Why do you think He asked that question? Why was that an effective question? How could we apply that to when we teach? How would the teaching experiences have been different if the Savior had not asked questions in these situations?
Have the class come up with what they think would be an effective question to ask about a principle of the gospel. Then have the class discussion how the question is/isn’t effective, and why. Then have them discuss how they would make more of an effective question, and why that would make it more effective.
