In today’s lesson they will learn about following Jesus Christ. 35

Sam went out to help his father gather wood for the fire. It was winter and the snow was very deep. Sam and his father each took an armload of wood and started back toward their home. It was hard for Sam to walk in the deep snow with his heavy load.

Sam’s father told Sam to walk in the footprints that he left in the snow.

It was much easier for Sam to walk when he followed his father’s footsteps.

Why did Sam follow his father’s footsteps?

Why do you think it was easier for Sam to walk in the snow when he followed his father’s footsteps?

Why did these fishermen follow Jesus?

What would you do if Jesus asked you to follow him and be his disciple?

Just as Sam’s father asked Sam to follow him,

Jesus asks all of us to follow him.

Sam’s father knew that it would be easier for Sam to walk if he followed his father’s footsteps.

The Savior knows that our lives will be easier and we will be happier if we follow him.

What does it mean to follow Jesus?

Why is life easier for us when we follow Jesus?

Come, Follow Me 1. "Come, follow me," the Savior said. Then let us in his footsteps tread, For thus alone can we be one With God's own loved, begotten Son.

We can follow Jesus by trying to be like him and by obeying his commandments.

When we learn his ways and do what he asks us to do, we are following his footsteps.

Listen to the following story about how a young boy named Heber followed Jesus Christ:

Heber shivered in the cold and wrapped his thin coat around him. It would soon be his birthday, and all he wanted was a warm coat. But he knew his mother would be sad if he asked for one, because she could not afford to buy him one. Heber’s father had died when Heber was a baby, and Heber’s mother worked very hard to earn the money they needed. She would often sew until late at night, making clothes for other people.

On the day of Heber’s birthday, his mother wished him a happy birthday and handed him a beautiful coat she had sewn for him. Heber could hardly wait to wear it outside and feel how warm it would keep him.

A few weeks later while on an errand, Heber saw a boy who was wearing only a sweater. Heber knew how cold he must feel. Almost without thinking, Heber took his coat off and gave it to the boy.

When Heber’s mother saw him wearing his old coat, she asked him what had happened to his new coat.

When Heber’s mother saw him wearing his old coat, she asked him what had happened to his new coat. Heber explained, “I saw a boy and he needed it lots worse than I did so I just gave it to him.”

When Heber’s mother saw him wearing his old coat, she asked him what had happened to his new coat. Heber explained, “I saw a boy and he needed it lots worse than I did so I just gave it to him.” His mother asked, “Couldn’t you have given him your old one?”

Heber looked up at his mother, hoping she would understand, and saw her eyes fill up with tears. She hugged him tightly as she said, “Of course you couldn’t, Heber.” (See Lucile C. Reading, “The Coat,” Children’s Friend, Nov. 1966, p. 5.)

How did Heber follow Jesus Christ?

The boy in this story was Heber J. Grant, who grew up to become the seventh President of the Church.

Can you think of ways you can show your love for others?

If you saw someone fall and get hurt, what could you do to show love?

If someone at school didn’t have a lunch, what could you do to show love?

Loving others is more than feelings or words.

We show our love by what we do.

How have you shown love for other people during the past week?

Follow in his footsteps. Let’s take turns

Remember that we follow Jesus Christ when we choose the right.

Let’s say these words again together.

Time to make Your own footprints

TESTIMONY • I want to testify to you that following Jesus Christ will made you happy. • If we follow him, Jesus will lead us back to live with our Heavenly Father again. • I want to encourage you to always try to follow the footsteps of Jesus. • Discuss your paper footprints with your parents.
