Jesus Christ had come to fulfill the lower law and teach a higher law
I was struggling to come up with a way to teach a three year old about the law of Moses and the law of Christ and how in different times God's children are given different commandments. And then I was craving Skittles. And then this happened....
Put a stack of cards on the table with different chores/jobs/rules in your family. Then place a bowl of candy in the center. When you flip a card over everyone that that rule applies to gets to take a Skittle.
At the end of the game we can see how even within the family different members have different rules to follow. The baby doesn't know how to make her bed yet and a toddler is not expected to pay the bills. As we grow we are given more responsibilities because we are better able to handle them.

This was a lesson I really needed to hear this week. After attending the temple, I have been pondering this idea so much lately of why it is that we are given line upon line and why people from the past were given different commandments.
I am just so grateful to know that we are growing and that God continues to parent us and guide us, catering to his children uniquely as a generation and on an individual, personal level as well.
