The Hubs and I occasionally teach Sunday School. The Sunday School Department has been teaching the children The Ten Commandments.
Last weekend, one of the girls asked me if we could teach. I said “Yes” before I knew what the commandment was; “You shall not commit adultery”. She admitted to me later, she wasn’t sure how to teach it so she decided to ask me to do it.
We are talking about 2 to 6 year olds.
After reading some of the materials, I decided the best option was to explain that marriage is a promise and adultery is breaking that promise.
I begin by saying to the children, “We have been learning the Ten Commandments. Does anyone remember some of the commandments we have learned?” (Two children remembered one commandment). Then I went on to say, “This week our commandment is ‘You shall not commit Adultery'”. Without missing a beat, one of the six year olds says, “Wooow”. It was so funny (maybe you had to be there). So I asked him, “Do you know what that means?” He said, “Nope”. (Don’t worry about it, a lot of people these days do not know what it is)
The Hubs and I had a good laugh.
