Let the children make suggestions and write them down as they suggest them. When you are all done, take out 3 to 5 of the most important rules and write them down on a big piece of paper or on the board. Have the children draw pictures to illustrate them or have them make their own book of rules.

10. Take one piece each of red, green and yellow construction paper. Discuss briefly what a stoplight is, why we have one and how important it is to obey the stoplight so you don't have a wreck.

11.Have all the children stand up in a circle around the tables. They can march, skip, walk, whatever they want, until you hold up a red card, then they have to stop where they are. Green they can go again, yellow means slow, etc. Play this a few times, then sit back down to color in coloring sheets. Use only green, red and yellow crayons.

12. For an extra time filler or activity, find one of those activity rugs with roads and streets on them, I have seen them at Walmart before. Put on the floor, give the children toy cars and let them play. They will make up their own rules for intersections if they have enough time, it's a blast to watch.

How long shall we obey the Commandments for Children and we adults, and will they become no longer valid or obeyed?

Deuteronomy 7:9
Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; - This verse teaches us that the law is valid and we should apply them today.

Deuteronomy 4:40
Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

The Love of God and of neighbor is the summary from the law and prophets.

Mark 12:28

And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

Mark 12:29
And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

Mark 12:30
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Mark 12:31
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Mark 12:32
And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

Mark 12:33
And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

Mark 12:34
And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

The understanding of love and of the commandments gives one great understanding: "Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. Make Jesus Lord of your life."

"Love is the fulfilling of the law."

Romans 13:8
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

Romans 13:9
For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Romans 13:10
Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

The oratorio was actually quite controversial, since it used the words of God in the theater, and the title only made things worse. Handel compromised a bit by dropping the "blasphemous" title from handbills. It was instead called "A New Sacred Oratorio.
