When We Choose the Right, We Are Blessed

Daniel was playing football with his friends when he saw Joseph sitting alone, watching. Joseph wasn’t very good at football. But Daniel decided that he wanted Joseph to be included more than he wanted to win the game. He jogged over to Joseph and asked, “Do you want to play with us?”

Daniel chose the right.

Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have promised us that when we choose the right, we will be blessed. We have righteous examples to follow in the scriptures. Here are two:

  • When Noah followed the Lord’s command to build the ark, he saved several members of his family from the Flood. (See Genesis 6–8.)

  • When Nephi broke his hunting bow, he made a new bow instead of giving up. His father, Lehi, prayed for help, and the Lord led Nephi to food. (See 1 Nephi 16:18–32.)

Sometimes it’s hard to choose the right, but Heavenly Father blesses us when we do. As we make good decisions, we can feel peace and happiness.

CTR Game

Glue page 65 onto heavy paper. When it is dry, cut out the cards. Players will take turns finding two cards that match: one card shows a situation in which a choice needs to be made, and the matching card shows someone choosing the right. For example, the card that shows a boy earning money matches the card that shows him paying tithing.

How to Play: Mix up the cards and lay them facedown. A player turns over two cards. If the cards match, the player keeps the cards and turns over two more cards. If the cards don’t match, the player turns them back over and it is the next player’s turn. Younger children can play with fewer cards or with the cards facing up.
