The Coat: A Family Home Evening Lesson

Opening Song:  Have I Done Any Good?  Hymn 223

Scripture:   Matthew 25:40

Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren 
ye have done it unto me.

Story:  The Coat

Read the story (print here), show a picture of President Heber J. Grant (Gospel Art Kit picture 512) and then watch the sweet animated video.

Activity: Make a service goal. Whom can we serve? What can we do for them? When will we do it?

Closing Song: Because I Have Been Given Much Hymn 219

This song is not included on the website because of copyright, but the words are:

Because I have been given much, I too must give.
Because of thy great bounty, Lord each day I live.
I shall divide my gifts from thee with every brother that I see,
who has the need of help from me.

Because I have been sheltered, fed by thy good care…
I cannot see another’s lack and I not share-
my glowing fire, my loaf of bread-my roof’s safe shelter over head,
that he too may be comforted.

Because I have been blessed by thy great love dear Lord,
I’ll share thy love again according to thy word.
I shall give love to those in need. I’ll show that love by word and deed,
thus shall my thanks be thanks indeed.

Treat:   Rice Crispie Treats
