THIS is a great lesson!  One that not only little people need to learn, but a lesson that is is good to be repeated to all of us young and old every now and then.  We all have occasion to fall into the trap of being a dipper.  At least I do, and I'm pretty sure, I have to cover my bucket every now and then so others don't dip too much from me either!  Let's face it- When we take responsibility for our actions and our attitude at home with family, or out with friends or at school and work, we make the world a much happier place for everyone.  Our days go smoother, our world stay brighter!

SO- this concept is nothing new.  I read this lesson years ago, and happened upon it again a few months ago.  I created a few printables of my own and made it easy to download and use for any of you who would like to teach this to others.  Believe it or not- I shared it with my family for FHE, Family Home Evening last month, and my son, who is 16 had his friends over for a devotional last night at our home.  He was in charge of giving the thought and "lesson".  He chose to read this story and even gave the guys the handouts. (And he's a picky dude-doesn't let mom in on teenage social life very often...sound familiar?!)  Voila!  My sneaking suspicion would be that they took it to heart and hopefully keep this simple ideal in mind.  Something must have gone right because they asked to have their picture taken together outside as a group.  Which never happens with teenage boys, right?!

Here are a few printables to help you share this lesson with your audience.  Family, Students, Activity Days, Scouts, YM, YW, Relief Society or workers- you name it!

Enjoy and remember...Don't be a Dip!
