Are you looking for more ways to tie in Come Follow Me to your singing time activities? This Have I Done Any Good Scriptures & Service idea is a great way to incorporate the Come Follow Me scriptures for this month!
Use this spiritual connection singing time idea and and read scriptures together to better understand the blessings of service! In this post, you’ll find colorful word strips with scripture verses and some cute visuals for ways to serve while you learn Have I Done Any Good.
Have I Done Any Good Scriptures & Service
Prepare for this activity by reading though Jacob 1-4 from Come Follow Me April 1-7. I’ve created word strips for Jacob 2:17-19. Cut out these strips before primary. Number each scripture in order.
Review the first verse and chorus of Have I Done Any Good flip chart before introducing this activity.
Then, ask for 3 volunteers to read a few scriptures. Pass out the word strips. Have the rest of the class listen quietly as the verses are read.
Ask the children: What do we learn in these scriptures? How do these verses relate to the song we are learning? Sing through the song again.
Like our song, these scriptures tell us that Heavenly Father wants us to serve those around us. Can anyone think of something they did this week to help someone else?
Begin a short discussion about simple ways we can serve. Encourage the children to think of one thing they can do next week to help someone.
You’ll find colorful visuals for different ways to serve in our printable later in this post! Print and cut out these visuals to use during your discussion. Choose a picture at random and see what other ideas you can think of!
Finish your discussion by sharing your testimony of the blessings of serving others. Remember to ask about any service experiences the following week!
Come Follow Me Scripture Tie-In:
This activity is a great opportunity to tie in Come Follow Me in a simple way! The scriptures used for this activity can be found in the Come Follow Me lesson for April 1-7: Be Reconciled unto God through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
Jacob 2:17-19 teach the importance of serving others. Read these verses together to teach your primary children the true lesson behind this hymn.
17: “Think of your brethren like unto yourselves, and be familiar with all and free with your substance, that they may be rich like unto you.
18: But before ye seek for riches, seek ye for the kingdom of God.
19: And after ye have obtained a hope in Christ ye shall obtain riches, if ye seek them; and ye will seek them for the intent to do good – to clothe the naked, and to feed the hungry, and to liberate the captive, and administer relief to the sick and the afflicted.”
- Write a fun way to sing on the back of each picture card. Choose a card and sing through the song! Some examples might include: Girls Only, Boys Only, Teachers or Kids, Sing Softly, Tap/Snap the Beat
- Read the scripture reference for this song (Alma 9:28) and look for the blessings of righteous living. Have the children write or draw a blessing they feel from service.
- Split the class into 3 groups and pass out one verse to each group. Give each group a piece of paper to draw their verse. Then, have them share their drawing with the class!
- Share some General Conference quotes about service. This talk entitled “Eyes to See” by Michelle D. Craig in October 2020 is a great talk to reference!
- Play Service Pictionary! Have a volunteer come to the front of the board to draw a picture representing some kind of service. See if the rest of the group can guess the drawing!
