Level 2 Lesson Plan: A Tale of Two Houses
Friday, February 7, 2020

Note to the parent or teacher: Here is a 30- to 45-minute lesson plan to fill out the post “The Parables of Jesus: A Tale of Two Houses.” It goes with the lesson objectives, “Study more of the parables that Jesus taught and their meaning” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Jesus, God’s Son-2b); and “Learn how one may not see the immediate effect of some of the choices one makes, but all choices eventually add up to determine the course of one’s life, which is why one must learn to choose rightly; learn that one has a choice in the way one behaves toward others, and in the daily decisions that one makes. One is able to evaluate the consequences of one’s actions and choose rightly” (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Choice and Decision-making-2d).

Note to parents/teachers: The “consider and reflect” points interspersed throughout this lesson plan provide a reflection to help in applying the parable lesson personally. A Bible scripture is included for each one. Feel free to encourage your children to think of Bible stories or other verses when applicable.

ReadThe Parables of Jesus: The Sower: A Tale of Two Houses.” (You can also read this parable in Matthew 7:24–27 and in Luke 6:46–49.)

Explain to the children how we can use the guidance of God’s Word to make the right choices in our lives. When we follow God’s instructions to us, we are building our lives on a strong foundation (the Rock).

Listen to “Audio: Building on the Rock.”
