An Amazing Race: Week 5

Know when and who to listen to

This resource provides you with a lesson plan, drama scripts, songs, activities to teach this lesson effectively, with opportunities for the children to be active in the learning process.

To teach the children that we need to know who and when to listen to wise counsel.

1 Kings 19:1-18 / 2 Samuel 15-18

Rule number 5 is about honouring our Parents. Family is the birthplace of self-esteem, learning the value of being human, learning to relate to others. A properly functioning family is also the birthplace of respect for authority and values. (Philippians 2:14). This is how God intended the family to function. With this comes the need for respect for our mothers and fathers. Most of us would be able to say that our parents have invested more into our lives than any other person. For that we owe them respect. We can’t deny that age brings life’s hard lessons and the experiences of them bring wisdom. Young people will always be able to learn from older people in this respect... We need to treasure our families and look after our parents as they have looked after us. Of course, in these times where family is breaking down and many children are left to fend for themselves this commandment is very difficult. Yet, studies show that 75% of our Australian population would still choose to have a traditional family and would like to function within one. The Church needs to stand up for the family unit and be a surrogate for broken homes.
