The Ten Commandments for Sunday School Teachers
- Seek God’s guidance first as you prepare your lesson each week.
- Keep the Word of God holy. It’s the chief tool for instructing your students.
- Honor the Sabbath Day by renewing yourself in worship and regular reception of the Sacrament.
- Honor the fathers and the mothers by keeping them informed about what is happening in class.
- You shall treat evangelism as loyalty to Christ and love of neighbors rather than contrived marketing.
- You shall look beyond the hands of the clock toward eternity, instructing your students as if there is no tomorrow.
- You shall not treat stewardship as an embarrassment. Stewardship is more than offering envelopes and the proper use of talents.
- You shall love your students with all your heart and mind and soul and practice forgiveness—so they may learn to forgive in a like manner.
- You shall not panic when the Sunday School superintendent brings you a class whose teacher didn’t show up this Sunday.
- You shall not covet what other Sunday Schools have, but use your ingenuity.
