Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this unit study to help teach children that God wants us to follow the rules. It is based on Christ's order of tribute (tax) payment to Ceasar in the Gospel of St. Matthew 22:15-21.
This lesson focuses on obedience to rules and laws. Students must learn that rules are in place for a reason. Even if we don’t understand or agree with a law, we must trust the person who gave the command to us, and we must obey him. God gave us ten rules to follow called the Ten Commandments. We must always view these alongside the two greatest commandments - Love of God and love of neighbor (CCC:2055, 2056).
This fun unit study is suited for a CCD or Religious Education class. It may also be used for Sunday School programs or as homeschool materials.
