Resist the Devil and He Will Flee

On March 12th, the Primary Class learned how Satan came to Jesus to tempt Him.

Sandra started the lesson off by showing her class a short video depicting Satan’s failed attempts to tempt Jesus.  After the video, Sandra discussed with the class why Jesus did not heed to the temptations of the devil.  Jesus was sent from Heaven on a mission to save the lost and did not want, nor was willing, to be distracted by the devil’s games and temptations.  Sandra explained to the children that we, as Christians, should be Heaven-minded like Jesus and resist the temptations of sin that Satan tries to put in front of us.  She told the kids that when Satan offers a temptation, such as lying or stealing, that we should do the exact opposite, such as not stealing and telling the truth, and run straight into the arms of our Lord.

Sandra reminded the children that one of the temptations the devil tried to tempt Jesus with was to command the rocks to be turned into bread.  To continue on with her point of doing the opposite of what the adversary of our soul says to do, the children made bread that turned into a rock when it dried.  Satan wanted bread from rocks, but the children made rocks from bread instead.  See the photos below!
