Paul teaches the saints in Corinth what it means to be “baptized into one body.” In this Come Follow Me FHE lesson, you will learn more about using personal spiritual gifts to build unity and serve others. Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.
Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
1. I see my mother kneeling with our family each day.
I hear the words she whispers as she bows her head to pray.
Her plea to the Father quiets all my fears,
And I am thankful love is spoken here.
2. Mine is a home where ev’ry hour is blessed by the strength of priesthood pow’r,
With father and mother leading the way,
Teaching me how to trust and obey;
And the things they teach are crystal clear,
For love is spoken here.
3. (3rd ending) I can often feel the Savior near
When love is spoken here.
Activity: Begin the lesson by telling each of the children one of the spiritual gifts you can see in them. Explain to them that God gives us spiritual gifts because he loves us.
Scripture: Read 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 aloud.
Ask: What are some of the spiritual gifts that are mentioned in these verses?
Read: Our Heavenly Father gives us each spiritual gifts. Not everyone has the same gifts. Our gifts are unique to us and can help us in our lives. They may aid us in serving others or strengthening our own faith.
Ask: How can we know what our spiritual gifts are?
Read: Sometimes it can be difficult to recognize our own spiritual gifts, but there are others around us who can see them. We can always ask our friends or family to help us recognize our spiritual gifts. God knows each of us perfectly and individually. We can ask him through prayer to help us recognize our spiritual gifts and how we can use them.
Share: Tell the children about one of your spiritual gifts, or a spiritual gift you recognized in someone else.
Ask: How can you use your spiritual gifts to bless others?
Testimony: Close with your testimony of spiritual gifts.

The atonement can give us the strength to overcome our temptations and the power of repentance allows us to be forgiven of our sins when fall into those temptations.
