Lesson 6

The Great Commandments and the First Three Commandments

The aim of this lesson is for your children to discover that the gift of the Ten Commandments is the gift of God Himself. Obeying the First Commandment means adoring and worshipping God alone. The Second Commandment shows us that we love God by always using His name and the names of His saints with love. The Third Commandment teaches us to keep the Lord鈥檚 Day holy.
